Registration is still open for the Waldo Waldo!
Saturday, October 17, 9 am
Supports the Trails and Open Space Coalition
The Waldo Waldo 5K is a locally-run family-friendly 5K walk & “fun run” fundraiser for local nonprofits.
The registration fee comes with a Waldo or Wenda costume kit (characters from the popular “Where’s Waldo?” children’s books) that includes a shirt, hat and glasses! Register now; the price increases the morning of the event.


Ballot issue 2D will allow the City of Colorado Springs to retain $2.1 million to spend on eight critical trail projects. 
Please put a sign in your yard for 2D!. If you would like to help distribute yard signs, or put one in your yard, please contact us to arrange pickup this week or next week.
The Trails and Open Space Coalition Board of Directors has also voted to support 2C, the sales tax for road repairs. Several of the projects listed for priority are in our public parks such as Cheyenne Cañon, Garden of the Gods and Palmer Park.
