Meet University Park Resident Ryan Surroz and Get to Know Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation
Ryan Surroz and his family are University Park residents and neighbors. He and his family have lived in the neighborhood since 2013. The Surroz Family loves living in the neighborhood and enjoys Dinosaur Park, morning and evening walks around the neighborhood, and The Pioneer and Ginza restaurants.
Besides his full time job, Ryan Surroz also serves as President of Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation. Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation is a philanthropic organization dedicated to raising money to support at-risk and disadvantaged children throughout Colorado. A secondary goal is to cultivate the talents of young philanthropists (generally young male business leaders aged 20-39 years old) and to raise awareness of those less fortunate. Ryan has been involved in the organization for six years, served on the board for 4 years, and previously acted as the Membership Chair. He has raised over $200,000 for Denver Active 20-30 and also sits on several other philanthropic boards.
“Denver Active 20-30 is the most rewarding activity that I pursue — I think it is safe to say that my involvement has developed into a healthy passion. I joined DA20-30 because I was inspired by this group of young professionals who were united in their dedication to supporting at-risk and underprivileged kids. I recognized right away that this was a truly unique organization and I wanted to be a part of it. Now as President of DA20-30, I see daily reminders of the impact on the kids that we support as well as the philanthropic leadership development in our members.” -Ryan Surroz (President of Denver Active 20-30 Children’s Foundation)
This year, Denver Active 20-30 is celebrating its 29th anniversary. It has given away more than $10 million through several established fundraising events.
