Sharing The Gold Logo


The Sharing the Gold engagement plan is meant to spur statewide discussion about whether hosting an Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games would be good for Denver and the entire state. Sharing the Gold includes the establishment of advisory groups, made up of key constituencies throughout the Denver Metro region and the mountain communities in which a Winter Games would likely take place if Denver and Colorado were to pursue a bid.

Two online community meetings to share information and gather feedback about this process took place on Thursday, Feb. 8 and Saturday, Feb. 24. To watch the recording, click here.
