Denver City Lax

Denver City Lax is a nonprofit growing the game of lacrosse in underserved neighborhoods and using the sport as a platform to assist at-risk youth in finding success on the field and in the classroom. Our team volunteers for and participates in activities with Denver City Lax, including its annual Dash running fundraiser in February.

Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation was established in 1978 and is dedicated solely to advancing the mission of Children’s Hospital Colorado. Thanks to donations large and small and the generous philanthropic spirit of our community, Children’s Colorado is able to provide the family-centered care for which we have become world renowned. From conducting cutting-edge research and treatment to building kids’ confidence through our hospital sports program, providing family sleep rooms and integrating arts therapy into the healing process, Children’s Colorado is truly unique in its approach to treatment.

Our team at Sparks Financial committed to giving $100,000 to build a new playground at the Colorado Children’s Hospital, South Campus. We met our goal this year! A special thanks to our clients who chose to partner with us to make an impact for the kids and families here in Denver.
