With support from an Ingenuity grant from the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, a group of enthusiastic citizens are banding together to launch a social media initiative to connect the community with ways to support local business recover lost revenues after the Waldo Canyon Fire.
“MYtineraries: All the Adventure, None of the Baggage,” is a fresh and invigorating celebration of ‘place with purpose,’ that builds upon the staycation concept with an added level of community support. It’s intended to lift the Pikes Peak region up during this time of diminished tourism and travel enabling us to land on our feet with even more strength as a community.
This started as an idea among friends to help re-energize the towns impacted. Coupled with their civic love and their unified connections, it has exploded into a formidable campaign. One dozen entities united to extol the jewels of culture, entertainment, dining, shopping, natural wonders and more that we have in our backyards.
You can post your MYtinerary to the Facebook page and share it with your friends. Whoever has the most “likes” by Monday, Sept. 3 by 5pm will be the winner of the ultimate staycation package at The Broadmoor.
Look around. This is where the true adventure begins. It doesn’t happen in another city, or another state, or on another continent under another country’s flag. It’s here. In the moment. Right before our eyes. And if we watch for it, we’ll find it everywhere we go. Pikes Peak Country. See it. Live it. Love it.
