5280 Vida is largely responsible for our relationship as well as everything we do together in Costa Rica. 5280 Vida formed when Charisa, Zak and Kenn saw a need for community amongst post college young adults in Denver and the surrounding area. The idea was to provide community and engagement for those who are post college age but still not fully submersed in their adult life with family, marriage and other commitments. We saw this particular group of people as the most underutilized group of people yet the same group that has more resources to give back than anyone. Post college adults have more time, money, and energy to pour into their communities and around the world, however there is very limited places for them to intentionally pour themselves and resources into.

From that birthed our core objectives to make a difference in Denver and around the world. At that point we ended up partnering with PuraVida Church in Esterillos Costa Rica (Kenn and Megan’s engagement place) for our efforts world wide, in addition to intentionally developing community and service opportunities for post college aged people in Denver.

As a community we committed to serving the people of Esterillos for 10 years building relations and pouring the love and friendship of God the Father into the children in that community who have had most of the important people in their lives walk out our abandon them.
