July 16, 2023 Sturgeon Electric Company Raises $75K For Freedom Service Dogs

Colorado District Hosts 8th Annual Charity Ride & Rally

For the last eight years, Sturgeon Electric Company has hosted its annual charity ride and rally to support Freedom Service Dogs of America. This incredible charity provides training for dogs that go on to provide life-changing services for people in need. This includes veterans with PTSD, or folks with disabilities who need help managing their day-to-day functions. The cost to train and place one of these incredible animals averages $30,000. 

Since our kickstands first went up in 2016, Sturgeon Electric’s annual poker run has raised the bar every year, adding more riders, bigger and better raffle prizes, and most importantly, financial support for this amazing cause. 2023 was our most successful event to date! We had 406 participants, $12K in prizes to give away, and more than $75,000 raised for Freedom Service Dogs.  

Sturgeon Electric would like to say a huge thank you to the volunteers who helped make this massive event safe and productive, and for your hard work to make this event possible every year. Thank you to our amazing vendors and sponsors who contributed generously to this amazing cause. On behalf of Sturgeon Electric and Freedom Service Dogs, we are immensely grateful.  

To all the riders, employees, families, and friends, thank you for making the world a better place through freedom service dogs.
