Craig Towler Freedom 5k & 10k Run
July 4, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Craig was born and raised in Boulder, CO and is very passionate about the outdoors, fitness and health. Craig is an avid weight lifter. He competed on various sporting teams such as baseball, basketball, and track & field growing up. Craig started volunteering for BBSC events in 2012 and fell in love with the high-level stress of race-day execution, and became an official course coordinator in 2013. Now, Craig has learned the skills of timing, volunteer coordination, sponsorship and customer service.
A Race to Help Others Achieve
“Please join me on July 4th, 2017 to celebrate life! One year ago, my life was forever changed and I witnessed a community come together in support of me and my recovery. I am forever grateful to each and every person who donated to my recovery, helped share my story or even had a positive thought or prayer for me and my family. I will never be able to show my true gratitude for all your kindness, but I would like to invite everyone to celebrate my Alive Day (alive day; the anniversary of a close escape from death, especially one involving permanent injury) with me at the first annual Craig Towler Freedom Run. I’d like to use this opportunity to once again come together as a community and to show the world that life is good and there is nothing more powerful than having perseverance and a positive attitude! The 4th of July is the day I became a survivor and I’d love to share it with everyone that’s been my support and motivation to not only keep going, but to succeed and continue to live life to the fullest despite the obstacles that are placed in our way. We have so much power as a community it’s truly an honor to invite you all to celebrate life on Independence Day!”
Craig serves as an inspiration to those of us who know him and those who will read his story. However, for his friends and family his inspiration did not begin with a tragic moment.
