Sun Outdoors, with more than 175 resorts and campgrounds across the United States and Canada, is partnering with Outdoor Afro to provide a variety of year-round experiential activities, events, and opportunities including leadership conferences and fundraising events. The partnership officially kicked off April 14-16 with Outdoor Afro’s 2022 leadership training at Sun Outdoors River Run RV Resort in Granby.

Founded in 2009, Outdoor Afro is a national not-for-profit organization that celebrates and inspires Black connections and leadership in nature.

The leadership training convened Outdoor Afro’s 100 volunteer leaders from 56 cities across the country with the group lodging on-site and using the resort’s Elk Ridge Ballroom. “Our Outdoor Afro leadership training is even more special this year because we gathered in person after two years of virtual workshops,” says Chaya Harris, national program director. “River Run RV Resort provided us with that family reunion feel.”

Since Longmont's Can’d Aid was founded in 2013, more than 2 million cans of water have been distributed, over 9,600 skateboards and bikes and 4,000 art kits built for underserved youth, and more than 3,000 instruments donated. This has been accomplished with the help of volunteers nationwide and through relationships with community leaders, nonprofit organizations, volunteers, and corporate partners.

The Gate Expansion Program not only has delivered 39 new gates to Denver International Airport (DEN), there will be colorful new artwork. The expansion increases the airport’s capacity by 30%, making it easy for groups to access meeting and event destinations in the state. Outposts of favorite local restaurants also are being added throughout the facility.
