Chick-fil-A Fountain donated almost $5,000 to Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Sept. 4. The cash donation resulted from the Third Annual Chick-fil-A Family 5K, an event that was held June 16, in Fountain.

The Chick-fil-A Family 5K raised more than $1,900 for Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention in 2017, which was more than doubled in 2018 due to the support of some key sponsors and increased participation. In just two years, the event has raised almost $7,000 for Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention.

"We are thrilled with the growing support of the Fountain and Colorado Springs community for the Chick-fil-A Family 5K and, more importantly, Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention," says Chick-fil-A Owner/Operator Ryan Saxby. "Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention does so much for our community that it's a true honor to be able to support them in this way."

Approximately 350 people participated in the Third Annual Chick-fil-A Family 5K at Metcalfe Park, which included a 5K race and fun run for children.
