About This Activity

On April 30, 2016, the 1st annual Cinco de Mayo 5K Run/Walk Event will be held at Deer Field Park. Community members will join together to cover some miles, share some smiles, and raise some money for the Rifle High School Spanish Club. The event will benefit all Spanish club members at RHS. It’s a unique opportunity for you to partner with others who are making a real difference in the community and the lives of many well-deserving students. The event will include a 5K Run/Walk starting and finishing at Deer Field Park in Rifle, Colorado, as well the surrounding area of the park. Our primary reason for seeking sponsors is to defray the cost of the T-shirts, insurance payment for the event, snacks, drinks for the participants and prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers for both men and women, among other expenses. We would also like to be able to fundraise for the Spanish Club and continue supporting with educational activities, community involvement and gathering in which we participate through out the school year.

The Spanish Club is an organization that enriches knowledge of the Hispanic Culture on campus.  This club is not only for Hispanic students or students taking a Spanish class, but for anyone who would like to enhance their cultural awareness.  Another great aspect of this club is you get a chance to meet new people, make friends...and learn a little Spanish too!  I believe that it’s important for students to be involved in extracurricular activities, and my experience has been that the participants of this club are mostly of Hispanic descent and this club may be the only extra-curricular activity in which they may be involved. Thank you for joining us as we all work in the community that we are creating.
