Children Hospital- Colorado Springs (South) Contigent
 
So C6Rubicon posted the CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL TOY RUN ON JUNE 29th in Denver.

I talked to Tom and he agreed anything to help get more toys for these kids. So I figured I'd start a Colorado Springs (South) contingent in order to help organize anyone that wanted to head up from southern CO.

Fellow Jeepers this is a GREAT cause. These kids are facing challenges that no one... much less a child should have to face! We have an opportunity to make a difference in their young lives.

If you are unfamiliar with Children's Hospital...then you are probably one of the lucky parents that did not have to take your kids there. Take a few minutes and look at what this hospital does for these kids and why it so important!
Here is the link to Children's Hospital...Welcome to Children's Hospital Colorado - Children's Hospital Colorado-Denver Area, Rocky Mountain Region

Here's a link to the HOSPITAL WISH LIST (TOYS NEEDED)
http://www.childrenscolorado.org/pdf...%20Ongoing.pdf

Challenge your co-workers, friends, families to bring in toys...

If you can't make it but would like to make a toy donation, I am willing to meet you and pick it up. PM me and we'll figure it out.

So Tom said that last year they LEFT THE STADIUM 0845-0900 AM...AND ARRIVED AT THE HOSPITAL LITTLE AFTER 0930 and the whole thing was FINISHED BY 1230.


So...
MEET : DENNY'S
8125 N ACADAMY BLVD
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO 80920
TIME: 0645-0700
LEAVE: 0715
There's a gas station next door.

This should give us plenty of time to get up there and give all the corvette owners a chance to drool over our Jeeps.:D They may go fast but we go "anywhere"!

RUMOR: A run is being planned for after we are finished !:whistling:

C6Rubicon 06-04-2013 08:43 AM

Bump :D

JoabsJks 06-04-2013 08:54 AM

I'm in.

Justin04Lj 06-04-2013 09:00 AM

Im planning on attending.

topher38 06-04-2013 11:20 AM

I was gonna try and go. But since the craziness of this last week I won't be able to make it because I'm leaving for Hawaii now in the 26.
I'll look at the toy sheet a little later to see what I can try to pick up. And I'll try to get it to one of you guys that are going.

As for the children's hospital being an amazing place.... It truly is magnificent. I know all to well.

Oberst Hajj 06-05-2013 05:35 AM

We are most likely in. Will depend on if I've got to support a flight test that day or not. Tee schedule always slips to the right, so will just have to wait see as the date gets closer. But, we are planning on going.

Sinister6 06-05-2013 01:19 PM

Bump!

Sinister6 06-06-2013 08:45 PM

Thanks to those of you that have PM'd me...Thank you! Let's keep those toys coming!

Bump!

Sinister6 06-12-2013 08:55 PM

Picked up some more toys today. If you don't want to pick out a toy you can also donate a gift card to the places listed and the hospital will buy exactly what they need most for the kids. Hope we can get a good size crew going up from the Springs area.

Justin04Lj 06-12-2013 09:07 PM

Yeah springs guys. Let's see it.

SETI1x 06-13-2013 08:39 AM

Sinister, sorry but I think I'll still be out of town that week. If I get back in time...I'm in. Will contact you when I get back.

Woohoo! Another bag full for the kids!!

Oberst Hajj 06-25-2013 08:53 AM

Just got my first bag load from the guys at work. No cameras allowed in here, but the kiddos are going to be able to do a lot of coloring now!

It's still up in the air if I can make the run on Sat... might be tied down with one of the rental properties :(

G-Rocc 06-25-2013 09:07 AM

Just got the OK from my Chief Scheduling officer and my boy and I are in. I'm in castle rock, anybody meeting up from there?

Awesome! We're leaving Springs around 0715...thinking 35-45 min drive to Castle Rock. Give or take a few minutes. If you want to create a meeting place off I-25 we can swing in and pick you guys up? And all of us will convoy together to the stadium.
