On Thursday, May 30th, we held our first event in Denver, co-hosted by Stay-Focused board member Joe Rooney (Adaptive Spirit board member and former Cox Communications’ CMO), and friend of Stay-Focused Brian Deevy (Director, Liberty Media Corporation.) Joe and Brian were joined by the Founder/President of Stay-Focused, Roger Muller, Director of Development, Ryan Chalmers, and Stay-Focused alumnus, Jacob Waters, as well as representatives from the US Olympic and Paralympic Committees, A-1 SCUBA, Craig Hospital, Adaptive Spirit, and a bunch of Tuck Business School alumni.

The event was designed to introduce Stay-Focused to the Denver and broader Colorado community, with the goal of identifying teens with disabilities to participate in Stay-Focused programs. We will build on the connections and conversations we initiated, and, based on the success of the evening, plan to host an annual event in Denver going forward.

Many thanks to the GM of the JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek, Dean Griffin, for the generous support he and his team provided in making the event enjoyable and successful.
