Team of 16 Air Force marathoners sponsored by ATRS Recycling raises awareness for Colorado Adaptive Sports athletes with disabilities.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 13, 2015

As the Rock 'n' Roll Denver Marathon & 1/2 Marathon celebrates its 10th Anniversary next week, American Textile Recycling Service (ATRS) employees, friends and family will be on hand to ensure the race through the Mile High City is clean and green for the second consecutive year. The 3-day event consisting of a Health & Fitness Expo and Race Day is expected to draw 15,000 runners from across the world on October 16-18.

American Textile Recycling Service will provide onsite textile recycling at the Health & Fitness Expo and will collect discarded warmup gear, clothing & shoes from the course for charitable recycling. The Houston-based company is also sponsoring 16 members of the United States Air Force and their families in the half marathon, 10K and 5K races taking place on October 18. The Airmen are running on behalf of ATRS nonprofit partner Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation (CASF). Sponsored runners can be easily identified on the course, clad in bright green running gear including the campaign's signature ROCK RUN RECYCLE tank tops.

"My fellow Airmen and our families are honored to be running in the Rock 'n' Roll Denver Marathon on behalf of Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation," said Ernest Regalado, an Airman in the United States Air Force and local Denver resident. "The drive and dedication demonstrated by CASF athletes is inspiring to us all. By running as a team, we challenge all marathoners and local residents to support these athletes year-round by donating into ATRS Clothing & Shoe Recyclers citywide."
