The Phantom was created to raise money for Animal Rescues in Northern Colorado. Race entry includes a 5K run/walk, entry into the costume contest, a ticket into the famous Bone Chilling Breakfast & the best race t-shirt in Northern Colorado! The race was changed from a 4 mile run to a 5K in 2014. Kids under 10 eat free and have the opportunity to participate in the kids fun run, face painting & cookie decorating. This is truly a fun for the whole family race!

Animal House will provide relief and support to our overburdened shelters. Their goal is to save animals slated for euthanasia due to pet over-population and to give them a second chance at life. It is their goal that the shelter reflects a safe, healthy and clean environment for these animals. Having healthy animals, both physically and mentally, is a priority to Animal House. They ensure this by giving them quality nutrition, daily exercise and fresh air in a sanitary environment. Due to the stress that these animals have experienced, it is important to provide a caring environment that will ease their transition into their new life.

The Sanctuary, located near Grover, Colorado surrounded by the beautiful and serene Pawnee National Grasslands, is home to more than 100 horses, dogs, cats and other animals on any given day who come from shelters, rescue groups and owners no longer able to care for their pets from around the United States.
