FirstBank supports many non-profit organizations in Colorado, California, and Arizona.  Beyond just a financial contribution, management and staff volunteer a significant amount of personal time to these organizations.  I have been a volunteer with the March of Dimes of Metro Denver since 2006.  The March of Dimes is dedicated to helping the world have healthy moms and babies.  In 2011, I became a member of their Board of Directors.

This past weekend, the March of Dimes Denver Division held one of their most popular events – the Mudd Volleyball Tournament in Aurora, CO.

The event attracts over 3,000 people ranging from teams, fans and volunteers.  The tournament features over 50 mud volleyball courts with lots and lots of mud.   Why would someone sign up for it?  Well, because it’s great fun and for a great cause.

Mud volleyball is the great equalizer for all volleyball skill sets.  Novices and expert players are all welcome.  Most competitors are there to enjoy a fun day with their friends.  You will see a lot of costumes and outfits for the different teams.  The event also features great music all day long from 104.3 FM.  There is also a ton of great food served from food trucks like Steuben’s.  There are also plenty of showers to wash off the mud at the end of the day.

Kathryn Marshall, State Director for the Colorado March of Dimes, gave us an opportunity to ride up a scissor lift to get a bird’s eye view of the event.  Hope you like the photos.

It’s great to work for a company that helps contribute to great organizations like the March of Dimes.  FirstBank recognizes that we cannot be successful without having a strong community.  It’s important that we do whatever we can to make the communities we serve even better.
