Under clear blue skies Wednesday, the CU Anschutz Medical Campus enjoyed its most-successful CU Anschutz Block Party yet, with more than 3,500 faculty, staff, students and community members attending the fifth annual event.
A record 130 booths (40 more than last year) representing CU Anschutz organizations, departments and programs as well as the Aurora community filled the Bonfils Circle in front of Building 500. The fun and food trucks brought out folks from all walks – including health care professionals in scrubs and researchers in lab coats – to enjoy a midday break with colleagues from across CU Anschutz and the wider community.
Games included pingpong, lawn bowling and a first-ever zipline. Music on the main stage was performed by Denver-area rock bands Wildermiss and iZCALLi.
