The Rapids say they know the pandemic has been hard on students and their families and wanted to give them the opportunity to enjoy a fun event together. Because many of the Rapids players come from other countries, they wanted to connect with a school like Paris Elementary, where the students come from 23 different countries.

The Rapids partnered with Mile High Behavioral Healthcare to provide the tickets to teachers, students and their families.
