The 3nd annual Be A Tool 5k Run (On Small Business Saturday) is being held to help support the growth of the Neighborhood Rehab Project. In September of this year approximately 750 volunteers came together in Golden, Arvada & Englewood to help work on projects for folks in need of warm, safe and dry conditions.  Proceeds from this race will go directly toward future projects in 2016 & 2017.   
The 5K begins at 8:30 a.m. under the Howdy Folks arch. Save your bibs because participants will receive a free pancake breakfast and a chance to win one of many give-away prizes.  Mens & women's 1st, 2nd & 3rd overall winner will receive a medal. 

"Participate in Golden's Small Business Saturday photo contest by snapping some pictures while shopping and dining. Be sure to tag both @visitgoldenco and the business you’re supporting on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with #shopsmall for the chance to win $100! Five winners will be randomly selected."

Register early, the first 200 registrants will receive an Elf hat.  Put on your most festive holiday attire and come join us for a fun morning of activities supporting Small Business Saturday as well as a great cause!
