Oktoberfest Shuffle at Beaver Creek to benefit Vail Valley Charitable Fund
Beaver Creek Resort Company has selected the Vail Valley Charitable Fund to benefit from proceeds earned at the annual Oktoberfest Shuffle on Sept. 1.
Beaver Creek’s much-loved and longest-running tradition, Oktoberfest is rooted in friendship with the resort’s sister-city Lech Zürs, Austria. Beaver Creek’s version of Oktoberfest is a friendly and intimate festival that offers traditional live music, food and family-friendly fun in the heart of Beaver Creek.
On Sunday of Oktoberfest, spend the morning enjoying the beauty of Beaver Creek’s trails with the Beaver Creek Oktoberfest Shuffle. Sign up for the 5K, 10K or 1K family race and build up your appetite for the day while supporting the Vail Valley Charitable Fund. All proceeds go to the fund, which helps those living in the Vail Valley experiencing financial hardship due to a medical crisis.
A huge thank to all of our sponsors who make this event possible, including Beaver Creek Resort Company, Epic Promise, United Way, Vail Valley Cares, Vail Daily, TV8, Vail Honeywagon, Shaw Electric, Starbucks, Whole Heart Healing, and Xerox High Country Copiers.
To sign up to volunteer or for more information, email email@example.com.
