Our Programs

There are many ways WeCAN tries to connect neighbors to one another though-out the year. Below you can read more about some of our current and past events and volunteer opportunities. We hope you will find something of interest to get involved in.

 

WeCAN Running Club

Want an opportunity to get to know your neighbors and get some exercise? Every Monday at 6:30 PM join your West Colfax neighbors for a fun run around Sloan’s Lake and back to Seedstock Brewery for BOGO beers. All ability levels are welcome. We usually have about 10-20 runners/joggers/walkers so you are bound to find someone at your speed. Run 16 times and you earn your WeCAN Running Club pint glass! For more information, email the WeCAN Running Club coordinator, Steve@wecandenver.org.

West Colfax Clean-Up Day

WeCAN partners with Extreme Community Makeover (ECM) and Confluence Ministries every October for a clean-up day in West Colfax. Past years projects have included yard work for elderly and disabled neighbors, alley and graffiti clean-up, and help prepping the community garden. This is a family friendly event with lunch included. Contact info@wecandenver.org to get involved in our next clean up day.

Tree Planting Day

Every spring WeCAN partners with Denver Digs Trees and The Park People to help bring more trees to the West Colfax neighborhood. Volunteers canvas the neighborhood looking for yards that need trees, connecting neighbors to the free and low-cost trees available through this program. In April, WeCAN teams helps plant these tree for our elderly and disabled neighbors. Contact info@wecandenver.org if you would like to help canvas or plant trees in the spring.

 

Water Station at the Colfax Marathon

Every May the Colfax Marathon runs though the heart of the West Colfax neighborhood. The WeCAN Running Club hosts one of the water stations, handing out water and cheering on the runners. Lots of volunteers are always needed for this event, reach out to Steve@wecandenver.org to learn more.
