Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

The Gents used an explosive second half to pull away from the Denver club, including long try runs from Wesley LaBorte. Aspen scored the final 22 points for the win.

Aspen also defeated the Defiance club from Glenwood Springs in a full-side contest earlier this summer.

The Gents also won the inaugural Aspen 7s tournament a month ago. They went on to finish fourth in the Denver 7s — won by the Barbos.
