Annual Charity Run

Founded in 1979, the Eldorado Run for the Cure is the longest operating footrace in the State of Colorado. All proceeds from the annual four-mile run benefit the Colorado Cancer Foundation's life saving work, e.g., aiding oncology patients, researchers, and physicians at the University of Colorado's Division of Medical Oncology. Community hospitals and treatment centers in rural Colorado also benefit from the CCF's donations, and in select cases, patients in need of immediate care can be flown to the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO for time sensitive treatments. 

Event Information

Each year the 4.0 mile course begins and ends at the Eldorado Springs Pool, located at 9 Kneale Road, Eldorado Springs, CO 80025. The out and back course takes runners through the entrance of Eldorado Canyon State Park, where step cliff walls shelter a gently flowing stream. About a half mile into the run, the canyon walls give way to rolling hills and open fields with spectacular views of the State Park on the return to the starting line. Upon finishing the short yet challenging course, runners are treated to catered food and drink as part of the post run festivities.

Speaking Engagement: Biking Seven Continents

"Stan Havlick never knew that with one touch of his rear bicycle wheel in the Pacific Ocean in 1992, a 17-year journey would take his front wheel to the West Coast of the Caspian Sea in Eastern Russia. Stan’s six coast-to-coast adventures took him across 19 countries, 11 states, three Australian provinces, and required over 20,000 miles of demanding and dedicated cycling, raising money for the Colorado Cancer Foundation. In 2009, Stan rode his 7th continent when he dipped his front and back wheels into the Neko Harbor off Andvord Bay on the peninsula of the Antarctic. Join Stan as he shares his tales and photos of this extraordinary adventure and unique cultural experience. Stan, who has lived or traveled on all seven continents, will also devote a portion of his program to answering questions about the wonderful world of travel." - Chautauqua, Boulder

Presentation: An Alaskan Arctic Wildlife Canoe Expedition

Presentation: An Alaskan Arctic Wildlife Canoe Expedition

Tucked into a remote corner of northeast Alaska, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) is a place where wilderness can be experienced on an epic scale, encompassing over 19 million acres. It is a place of discovery and adventure; a place for solitude; a place to be self-reliant and close to nature. There are no manmade trails, parking lots or visitor centers. It is a place to view wildness in a unaltered environment and it is truly unique to anywhere on this continent. In 1956, a party of five conservationists went on an expedition in the Sheenjek Valley to explore and campaign to protect this pristine area of Alaska. In the summer of 2017, Stan Havlick and Mike Fallon visited Last Lake, the most northerly destination of the 1956 party. They then canoed over 100 miles of the Sheenjek River, which was inspired by their friend, 95 year old Bob Krear who was a member of the original expedition. We hope you are able to join Stan and Mike as they share some of their tales and photos of this historic adventure. You may also enjoy viewing the DVD, Arctic Dance and reading the insightful book “Two in the Far North” by Mardy Murie. Stan, who has lived and traveled on all seven continents, will also devote a portion of his program to answering your questions about the wonderful world of travel.

Japan: From Monks to Monkeys

In April 2016, Colorado Cancer Foundation Founder and Vice President, Stan Havlick, and his wife Margaret Carew, traveled to Japan at the height of cherry blossom season. Together with Margaret’s family, the couple explored Imperial Park, the Geisha District, and Philosophers Walk. They also toured a Koyasan Shukubo Buddhist Temple, and took a sobering visit to the Palace Memorial Park in Hiroshima.

Among the many highlights of Stan and Margaret’s trip was a lighthearted visit to a traditional Royokan, where they witnessed the wild snow monkeys of Nagano, the Shinto Shrine World Heritage Site on the Island of Mojajima. Still other adventures included a Sumidagawa River cruise, the famous National Museum, and downtown Tokyo.

Stan, who has lived and traveled on all seven continents, will also devote a portion of the evening’s program to answering questions. So please join us for a fun and informative evening at Changes in Latitude Travel Store in Boulder. It will be a great experience, one you will not want to miss.
