GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- - Strive hosts their 5th annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Botanical Gardens on Saturday, April 15.
The Easter Egg Hunt was divided into different sections based on age groups. There were 1,500 eggs in total set up, and around over 400 children in attendance. "I love this community. I think it's awesome for kids to be able to just get to do this and have fun," says Sandra Hubbs, who brought her daughter to the event.
The kids at the hunt seemed to really enjoy getting to chase down the eggs. "I am very experienced with Easter Egg hunts," says Dylan Fletcher, a 6 year old partaking in the hunt.
The event cost $5 a child, and the money goes to Strive's children services. "We support about 570 kids a year in the different things that we do. From autism to early childhood intervention, we do family support services. So there's about four different programs that this helps support," says Doug Sorter, a coordinator of the event and the Business Operations and Development VP at Strive.
Sorter also says Strive would like to thank the community for their support in this Easter Egg Hunt.
