Love Hope Strength is proud to announce our biggest and newest fundraising event ‘Red Rocks Rocks‘,which will take place at the world famous Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, just outside of Denver, Colorado on Saturday, September 26th 2015.
Through our longstanding partnership with Red Rocks, Love Hope Strength has registered over 18,000 people to the international donor registry and found some 354 potentially life saving matches at the amphitheatre’s concert and Film on the Rocks events making Red Rocks the most ‘life saving’ venue in the world today.
We are extremely proud of our unique relationship with Red Rocks and so we invite all our Love Hope Strength supporters to come to Colorado for Red Rocks Rocks 2015 and join us for an unforgettable day of hiking, music and remembrance to raise funds to support our campaign of saving lives one concert at a time.
Red Rocks Rocks will kick off on with an early registration on the Upper Terrace of the Amphitheater with live music, morning coffee, and a warm up session to get everyone ready to hit the trails!
The hike will begin at 0830 by walking through the iconic amphitheater itself and a chance to take in the far reaching views of the City of Denver rising above the stage in the far distance.
As we head down to the South Lot exit, we will then hike the Trading Post Trail, enjoying some breathtaking scenery and other unique views of the historic amphitheater. A steady trek down the trail will lead us to a beautiful rest area set against a backdrop of rolling Colorado hillside where we will enjoy refreshments and a chance to participate in a festival of remembrance followed by special acoustic performances from co-founder Mike Peters of The Alarm (who first appeared at Red Rocks on June 5th 1983 as special guest of U2 at their breakthrough ‘Under A Blood Red Sky Concert), and other LHS supporting artists. Trekkers of a musical persuasion are wholeheartedly encouraged to bring their own instruments to be able to join in as song and chord sheets will be distributed so that everyone can become part of the Love Hope Strength finale!!
Next we’ll head up the beautiful Geologic Overlook Trail to complete the 3.5 mile journey back to the Upper North parking lot where you’ll receive your commemorative hike finisher’s gift.
Those choosing to spend the day with us will continue back to the Upper Terrace for more outdoor festival style music performances and an exculsive chance to tour the backstage areas of Red Rocks, walking in the footsteps of thousands of musicians and witnessing the rarely seen ‘Hall Of Signatures’.
Then it’s down to the Rock Room to enjoy a catered lunch and refreshments (cash bar available), moving speeches by some of our survivors and donors, and a rousing jam session on the scenic outdoor patio by Love Hope Strength supporting artists.

In addition to funding our Get on the List campaign, a portion of the proceeds from Red Rocks Rocks will stay in the community, helping to support the Colorado Blood Cancer Institute’s (CBCI) amazing patient financial assitance program. CBCI is the “largest and most experienced blood cancer and transplant center in the region” and we’re proud to call them both partners and friends.http://www.bloodcancerinstitute.com
Finally, be sure to join us on Saturday night for a wrap up celebration party hosted by our friends at Hard Rock Cafe’ in Denver! Party starts at 7:00 PM!
