Second Wind Fund of Boulder County Emerge 5K - Morgan C

We are proud to be the title sponsor for the Second Wind Fund of Boulder County - Emerge 5K race on May 3rd. All money raised from Emerge 5K, SWFBC matches uninsured or underinsured children and teens who are at risk for suicide with local, licensed therapists, helping cover the cost of therapy. In March, the Colorado Department of Human Services Office of Behavioral Health reported a nearly 50% increase in calls and texts to its crisis hotline compared to 2019. The hotline staff estimated 60% of calls in April were regarding the coronavirus.- A HUGE thank you again to all of you who participated in yesterday's virtual Emerge 5K presented by Flatirons Subaru!!! The turnout we had across the country and across the world was unbelievable! We are truly touched by your support of our mission to get help for children and teens are at risk for suicide. We loved seeing all of your pictures, the costumes, the different locations, and all those Subarus! We really did come together as a community, and that's something to feel pretty proud of - especially in a time where a sense of community can be kind of difficult to attain.

Flatirons Subaru is saving animals’ lives - Lindsay S

The partnership between the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and Flatirons Subaru saves the lives of thousands of homeless animals in our community and supports pets of families experiencing the financial impacts of COVID-19 – so that pets and people can stay together. Flatirons Subaru’s title sponsorship of HSBV's annual fundraising events and the Subaru Loves Pets adoption event touches the lives of 6,500 shelter animals while providing thousands of pounds of pet food, discounted veterinary services, and emergency boarding to pets families facing a medical or housing crisis – critical services during COVID times. When the animals have a need, Flatirons Subaru is always there. The team at Flatirons Subaru are key partners in our critical work to protect and enhance the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people. We are so grateful for the incredible care they make possible for both animals and people – they continue to strengthen our community with their generosity and compassion.

new employee Kyle Augustin - Kyle A

Kyle was a new employee at the Flatirons dealership when we purchased our new car. While I had previously owned another Forester I wanted something that had more leg room in the back seat. That is when he promised if we could come and look they had been totally redesigned and I would be surprised. So we went and looked at several other dealerships and talked about many aspects and still not sure what we wanted. So on the next Saturday we went and dove several of the cars, a Forester, Ascent, & Outback. We both loved the way the outback handled and all the fun new features on the Outback. Kyle truly made the purchasing so easy and was always very patient with us as we asked to drive several different vehicles. Kyle took extremely good care of us and walked us back to finance and had communicated to finance ahead of time so that part was easy. We would go back to Flatirons and recommend Kyle for any of our friends.

Project Supertraining & Flatirons Subaru - Will D

The Project Supertraining mission is to provide athletes with sporting events as a means to exercise philanthropy. Project Supertraining offers a unique, monthly training ride for recreational and elite level athletes. This is the only fully supported training ride in the country from start to finish that’s by recommended donation of $20. Because of Flatirons Subaru’s partnership with Project Supertraining, 100% of the donations go to charity. Each month, these donations benefit a different local nonprofit organization. The ride doesn’t ask much from participants, which allows Coloradoans to come from near and far month after month. This is truly a well organized, grassroots level event that’s become a staple for the endurance community in Boulder, CO - the mecca of training grounds for the USA’s best athletes! Last year we raised about $15,000 for local charities, and, with help from Flatirons Subaru, Project Supertraining looks forward to building more events in 2020 and continue supporting nonprofits like There With Care, Second Wind Fund, and Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence, Pedaling Minds, Davis Phinney Foundation, etc…The Supertraining ride began with a small group of committed riders convening once a month, offering a $20 donation for the beneficiary nonprofit. When Flatirons Subaru began hosting the ride with its larger facilities, the ride blew up to host as many as 200 riders!Athletes enjoy complimentary coffee and handmade Belgian wafels by Vafels before the ride. A Subaru Outback provided by Flatirons Subaru as the support vehicle outfitted with 25 gallons of water and all the endurance nutrition you could ask for. The ride is challenging - up to 200 kilometers in distance depending on the season and weather - Supertraining welcomes everyone from weekend warriors to the best riders that compete in Grand Tours like the Tour de France, Vuelta a Espana and Giro d’Italia. Supertraining is not for the faint of heart. It’s a gran-fondo type of event, but with a low barrier to entry. Following the ride, Flatirons Subaru welcomes riders to stretch out and relax with a catered lunch - a true expression of community support on a Sunday afternoon when auto retailers typically close their doors.One of the benefits of this ride is that it makes an often and otherwise daunting Car Dealership a comfortable and hospitable place for the Boulder community. Flatirons Subaru has become the go-to spot for the group ride, a networking place for cycling enthusiasts in a low pressure atmosphere that doesn’t push a sales agenda. I love hearing from athletes how appreciative they are of Flatirons Subaru’s help - especially when they say “I bought my car from them BECAUSE of the Supertraining ride,” which came Lia E., a frequent participant in the Supertraining ride and Boulder resident. Many thanks to Subaru as always. Big things for 2020!!

Flatirons Subaru and SWFBC Give Youth Hope - Jenna C

The team at Flatirons Subaru lives by the promise to spread its love in our community; from the first day I met them, I knew they were a group of individuals that genuinely care about the well being of others. Second Wind Fund of Boulder County's mission is to decrease the incidence of suicide in at-risk youth by removing the financial and social barriers to treatment. The SWFBC Emerge 5k Fun Run is our largest fundraiser every year, and Flatirons Subaru was our presenting sponsor this year. Their donation provided 71 therapy sessions to our at-risk youth with suicidal ideation and helped saved nine kiddos' lives. Our organization would not be capable of serving youth struggling to stay alive in our county without exceptional community partners like Flatirons Subaru; we are so grateful for the kindness and support they have provided our organization.

Above and Beyond...thank you Fred! - Annie B

Here's the story--We leased a brand new Subaru Outback in December in Boulder Fred Rudd was our salesman. Our interactions with him were always very friendly and enjoyable. We hadn't been in touch since we finalized the lease until last Friday, Feb 2, when about an hour before we were to pack up the car and head out to a long-planned ski trip, my husband went to go run a quick errand and the car was completely dead. Unsure what to do, he called me. I was working and told him to just call Fred because I couldn't remember how to connect with our roadside service. He did, and within 20 minutes Fred personally came to our house and jumped our car! How's that for service, ehh? And why had the car battery died? Not sure. We actually think it might be a bigger problem because two days prior we lost complete control of the radio/navigation/app/etc panel. Regardless, Fred provided absolutely outstanding service.

Above and Beyond...thank you Fred!

Great Service - Thanks! - Michael W

The end of May, 2017, the primary belt snapped in our Outback. I called and talked to Jason, who said the next available appointment was on the order of two weeks, but if i could bring it in and leave it the next day, he'd see if he could work it in. I did, he did, and it was fixed by 3:30pm. I've yet to have a bad experience with Flatirons service; this was special

Great Service - Thanks!

Subaru & LLS Deliver Blankets to Cancer Patients - Beth M

Flatirons Subaru, in partnership with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, participated in a “Share the Love” campaign to help blood cancer patients at Rocky Mountain Cancer Center - Boulder. Team members from Subaru, LLS and RMCC - Boulder donated 80 warm, fuzzy blankets with care cards and messages of hope from the community. They also delivered 10 care kits to younger patients so the children could draw, do crafts and break away from hospital life. The program is a great way for LLS and Subaru to connect with local hospitals and help blood cancer patients. “It was a rewarding experience to be able to brighten the patients’ day and wrap them in love by providing the Subaru blankets! The cancer journey is tough, so to lift their spirits is a wonderful feeling,” LLS Sr. Campaign Director Beth Muehlethaler said.

Flatirons Subaru Supports Circle of Care Project - JOAN R

This is our second year in supporting the Circle of Care Project. The founder, Joan Raderman, has been a Flatirons customer for many years and when it came time to choose a local charity, she was our first choice. Joan uses her Subaru to assist the elderly in attending the theatre and the arts. The $10,000 she received has gone a long ways in helping even more clients. This picture really says it all.

Flatirons Subaru Proudly Supports Teen Safety - don s

Every year, Flatirons Subaru gives away a used car during the, "After Prom" party at the 2 local high schools. This encourages students to stay at the prom, overnight, rather than attend parties outside of the school and risk driving tickets or underage drinking dangers. A name is pulled at the party and a student actually wins a car! It has become a huge tradition and we try to find a "fun" car that a high school student would love to drive.
