The Denver City Lax Dash is coming!

Denver East Lacrosse is running for it's 5th year in the Denver City Lax Dash on Sunday, February 10 in City Park. Each year Denver East Boys and Girls Lacrosse run the City Lax Dash 5k to support our friends at Denver City Lax - and to have fun competing while we do it! By sponsoring a runner, you help raise funds to support Denver City Lax and their mission of the creation of educational and enrichment opportunities for youth in underserved Denver neighborhoods through the sport of lacrosse. Many Denver East Lacrosse players, both former and current, are City Lax alumni. We are thankful for this important program and proud to support Denver City Lax on February 10, 2019 at City Park running the City Lax Dash.
