About “Team Stay Fit at Hyatt”

With Grand Hyatt Denver general manager Greg Leonard at the helm, Hyatt Hotels in Colorado:  Grand Hyatt Denver Downtown, Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center, Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center and Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa, come together to support the “Team Stay Fit at Hyatt” for the June 25th Bike MS 150 Colorado Ride.  The group is comprised of 210 riders plus 60 volunteers, all Hyatt associates, family members and friends from across the United States.

Last year, the team raised $163,000 for the fight against multiple sclerosis.  That brought the cumulative total raised to more than $500,000 since the team’s inception in 2000, with an ambitious goal to reach $1 million raised by 2015.
