About this Event

According to recent statistics, Denver has seen a significant rise in youth violence, with a 40% increase in homicides among youth aged 17 and under in 2021 alone. This alarming trend has highlighted the urgent need for effective youth programs that address the root causes of violence and provide young people with the necessary skills and resources to lead healthy, productive lives.

Unfortunately, funding for these programs is often insufficient, with many organizations struggling to secure the resources they need to make a real impact. In 2020, only 1 in 3 youth programs in Denver reported having sufficient funding to meet the needs of their communities. This lack of funding can limit the effectiveness of these programs and leave many young people at risk.

The Sneaker Gala seeks to address this critical funding gap by bringing together individuals, businesses, and organizations committed to supporting youth programs that combat youth violence in Denver. Through the gala's fundraising efforts, we aim to provide vital resources to these organizations, enabling them to continue their important work and make a positive impact on the lives of young people in our community.

By attending the Sneaker Gala or supporting it in other ways, you can help make a real difference in the lives of Denver's youth. Your contribution can help provide funding for programs that offer educational support, mental health resources, mentorship opportunities, and other essential services to at-risk young people. Together, we can work towards a future where all young people in Denver have the chance to thrive and succeed.
