Zayo Enterprise Networks Announces First Annual Baseball for Backpacks

Share Article

Zayo Enterprise Networks of Colorado is partnering with Colorado Uplift to make sure kids have school supplies.

Zayo Enterprise Networks is pleased to announce its first annual Baseball for Backpacks fundraiser which will help to provide schools supplies for local Denver youth participating in Colorado Uplift. For 27 years of operation, UpLift has remained focused on its mission empowering urban youth to lead successful lives emphasizing character, education, and attitude. 79% of UpLift students in Denver Public Schools are on the free and reduced lunch program, which likely means that these families will struggle to get the necessary supplies.

Baseball for Backpacks will raise money for school supplies plus provide a special social event for kids and sponsors. Approximately 100 kids from Colorado UpLift's middle and high school programs will be joining Zayo and fundraiser sponsors for a baseball game to receive their school supplies and enjoy an evening at the ballpark.

Zayo's Baseball for Backpacks will be on August 21, 2009. The game starts at 7:10 p.m. and all participants and sponsors will be sitting together in the Rock Pile. In addition, Zayo is organizing a pre-game picnic and is looking for additional sponsors and volunteers. Please contact Katie McCoy at kmccoy (at) zayo (dot) com if you are interested.
