Black Excellence Weekend 2021

The Black Excellence Soiree

The Urban Leadership Foundation of Colorado is rooted in service and committed to giving back to our community. Our Alumni continue to exemplify excellence across all sectors and counties in the state of Colorado, creating a legacy and building opportunities for others along the way!

We want to take this time to celebrate our Alumni and welcome our 2021 fellows. Friday night will be an evening of fun, food, cocktails, celebration and recognition! Join us as we let our hair down with style and grace - July 23rd, 2021 from 6-10pm.

The 5th Annual Thanksgiving in July!

Focusing on our neighbors without homes we set out to create a day of thanksgiving, celebration, good food and positive energy.

Each year this event takes place in the Sonny Lawson Park, next to the Blair-Caldwell Library in the Five Points. With over 100 volunteers, we are intentional about connecting with the community. Our volunteers spend the day not only serving meals and preparing backpacks, we play basketball, dance, and engage with our people (following COVID restrictions of course) - we will hope you will join us!

Run 4 Your Mind Run & Health Fair

The Urban Leadership Foundation of Colorado has launched the Run 4 Your Mind – 4 mile run and mental health fair to take place on Sunday, July 25th 2021 at City Park. This is the only 5K focused and committed to improving the mental health and awareness for the African American community in Colorado. In addition to completing the 5K, participants will connect and learn from some of the leading mental health practitioners, therapist and holistic works that work specifically with the BIPOC community.
