The Breakfast of Champions® is Peak Vista’s premier fundraising event that supports our mission, to provide exceptional health care to people facing access barriers through clinical programs and education. This annual event features a gold medal Olympian who shares their inspirational story and its connection to health care.
Breakfast of Champions® generates funds for primary medical, dental, and behavioral health care services for individuals in the Pikes Peak and East Central regions, creates awareness of Peak Vista’s programs, and recognizes the many physicians, dentists, and other volunteer champions who support Peak Vista.
This year, a portion of funds raised will also go to support our First Visitor Program and Well Child Waiting areas. First Visitor provides free resources, education, and home visit support to parents of children ages 0-5 in our community, offering them the support and tools they need to care for their children. With our Well Child Waiting areas, parents can drop of their healthy children for free childcare while they attend their clinical appointments, removing a potential barrier to receiving the quality health care they need.
