WorldLife Water Year in Review 2014

0

What an amazing year 2014 was! We sponsored many events for the first time and enjoyed returning to work many events for the 2nd and 3rd time! We revamped our look with new bottles and we’ve established new relationships as we strengthened old ones. 2014 was one hell of a year for us here at WorldLife and we are so thankful that you all were a part of it!

The year started with a bang at The Spyder Active Lot Party which was part of SIA. We were thrilled to team up with the incredible Spyder team again for their official SIA Lot Party held outside of the Denver Convention Center.  As always, they definitely brought the party!  Free food, free drinks and live music played all night as the snow fell onto the busy Denver streets.  We were there to make sure everyone stayed hydrated!

As the days got warmer the people got thirstier and the events began filling our calendars. April was a busy month.

We sponsored The DAM Uncorked event at The Denver Art Museum for the second time.  Patrons were surrounded by delicious food and a huge variety of wine with all of the proceeds benefiting one of Denver’s most iconic and culturally important buildings. With all the food and wine it was vital for folks to stay hydrated throughout the evening.

One week later we sponsored The Hippity Hop Easter Trot in Stapleton. This was a family fun event where adults ran a 5k or 10k while the kids had a short race of their own! This Spring time event raised money to benefit The Denver School of Science and Technology. The Easter Bunnies did a great job keeping the racers hydrated.10168188_726993233989501_1200749324616144300_n

The last weekend of April was a celebration for our friends at Fluent Fitness and Fitness in the City. They had an incredible year and were celebrating their one year anniversary! This was a fun party filled with great people, fitness, food, giveaways and of course lots of water. We love being a part of their family and are so proud to watch them grow.

In early May we returned to hydrate the thirsty beer enthusiasts at the South Denver Beer Fest in Littleton. The South Denver Beer Fest featured over 120 craft beers over 2 perfect Colorado spring days. The weather was warm, the beer was flowing and the attendees were thirsty! We had a blast keeping everyone cool and hydrated.

June of this year was Snowmass Mammoth Fest and it was bigger and better than ever. The festival was spread between 2 locations in Snowmass, with the Chili tasting in the Snowmass Village Mall and the music and beer down in Snowmass Town Park. This year we did something special making custom reusable bottles for The Mammoth Festival, keep an eye out for this sleek bottle next year. Everyone was full of beer and chili, jamming to the tunes of Leftover Salmon, Xavier Rudd, The Motet and more and of course having a blast while staying hydrated!

July was a big month for us, as expected. 2014 was the 4th annual Fitness on the Rocks, which was the most EPIC fitness event of the year. In our 3rd year being the hydration sponsor, we joined our friends of Fitness in the City for 5 hours of fitness, high energy, sunshine, high fives, awesome vendors with endless schwag, tasty food trucks and the fabulous motivated and inspiring people that make up the community that is Colorado. Overall we had more 4,000 gallons of water floating around Red Rocks throughout the day! There were 5,000 biodegradable plastic bottles of water, and in an effort to reduce the overall waste created at the event, we brought up about 3,000 custom reusable ones (made from recycled plastic). A water truck with 3,000 gallons of water came to fill our 3 water monsters  and our  5 gallon jugs that we placed around the amphitheater, with all of the remaining water to be used during water fight. The fight included over 2,000 water balloons (biodegradable ones of course), foam water pumps and a variety of 50+ water guns. With more than 800 folks participating, balloons went flying, water was everywhere and people were drenched. Overall we would say this year was the best Fitness on the Rocks yet! We were so honored to be included in it again and we are excited to see how it grows and becomes even better next year!

In the end of July we headed up To The Roaring Fork Valley for The Xterra Aspen Valley Triathlon.  The Xterra Aspen Valley Triathlon is the most unique off road triathlon. It starts with a 1200m swim, followed by 12 miles on a mountain bike and ends with a 5k run. You had to be a really incredible, daring, and adventurous athlete to partake in this event and it was so inspiring to watch and hydrate!

In August we were at Glendale’s Bruises + Brews Beerfest. This beerfest is unique in that it has a rugby 7’s tournament to watch while tasting 20 (mostly local) craft breweries! It was another beautiful day in Denver and it was vital for everyone to drink plenty of water!

The end of August was the First Hike. Hope. Heal by the Aspen Strong Foundation. The Aspen Strong Foundation is a financial resource center supporting mental health, and Hike Hope Heal was their event to generate funds to offset the cost of mental health services for individuals in The Roaring Fork Valley. It was a large group hike up Smuggler and started and ended with a party in Herron Park. It was one of the rainiest days we’ve ever experienced in Aspen and still the incredible and supportive community came together to support a good cause.

The events did not end in the summer, September was another big month for us. First we provided the water for the Men’s Lululemon event at Fitness in the City. This event was to promote their men’s clothing line and offered a fitness class, BBQ and a DJ. IMG_2490

Later in September we returned to the beautiful mountain town of Telluride for Telluride Blues and Brews. Telluride Blues and Brews is a 3 day festival and is “one of the most scenic and intimate festivals in the country.” The festival was not solely about the music however, throughout the day there was so much to do- on Saturday there was a tasting from the best microbreweries in the country, while every day there was a wide variety of food and craft vendors, children’s activities and late night shows. We only give bottles to the artists and staff members running the event both at the venue and at their late night shows. We also brought backpacks that had 2 tubes that fill up 3 liters of water each. We wandered around the venue daily and reminded people to stay hydrated as we filled up their cups with water.

In October we were honored to be a part of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Greenwood Village. The event is “an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled breast cancer, raise awareness about what we can do to reduce our breast cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information, services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.” This was a really meaningful event and we were grateful to be a able to contribute to it.

We ended our amazing 2014 with Decadence, “America’s largest New Year’s Dance celebration” where thousands of citizens reflected on 2014, celebrated life and welcomed 2015 with two extravagant nights of music, dancing, loved ones and pure happiness all supplemented by tons of water. Our 2 water monsters, 20 5-Gallon Jugs and thirst busters worked hard all night long to keep the water flowing. WorldLife was thrilled to provide the water and keep over 30,000 very thirsty folks hydrated, cool and ultimately alive throughout the 2 nights!
