ENTERCOM Adult Standards KEZW (STUDIO 1430)/DENVER, with the help of loyal listeners, veterans and the local community, reached their goal on FRIDAY evening, MAY 25th and raised $400,000 for the COLORADO FREEDOM MEMORIAL FOUNDATION that was needed to break ground and to complete the project.
The City of AURORA has donated the land as part of SPRINGHILL PARK, directly north of BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE for the Memorial. "Friday was the realization of 12-years of dreaming, planning, praying and never letting go of the idea a Memorial to COLORADO’s fallen veterans was a good thing," KEZW PD and Breakfast Club host RICK CRANDALL said. "It’s been great seeing how many people are excited about this dream becoming a reality and I most happy for the families of the fallen who will now have a place to go and see our gratitude for their sacrifice."
The COLORADO FREEDOM MEMORIAL, once built, will be a glass wall, etched with more than 6,000 COLORADO veteran names who have been killed in action, including 102 in IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN. To learn more about the Memorial please go to www.cfmf.net.
