DENVER, CO – The 2014 Rocky Mountain Rivalry has come to an end, and thanks to your donations, the Blue Knights raised $33,993.24 and the Troopers raised $21,211.00. This incredible outcome was only possible because of those who supported both drum corps. As a supporter, you have played a pivotal role in helping ensure that this year will be a moment in the Blue Knights and Troopers history that will define the drum corps for years to come. Our donor honor roll includes not only alumni, but parents, fans and supporters of the Blue Knights–a diverse group of people whose common ground is the wish to see programs like ours not only survive in the years to come, but thrive.

The Rocky Mountain Rivalry raised a combined amount of $55,214! While the Blue Knights won the challenge, the real winners are both programs, who will be able to use these generous donations to finish out the 2014 season strongly and be well prepared to begin planning for the 2015 season. This money will be used to provide food and fuel for the corps on the road, as well as educational opportunities for future members as we move into recruiting for the 2015 season.

Whether you donated $10 or $10,000, please know that we are very grateful for your support and want you to know that you have a special place in our hearts. The Blue Knights and Troopers would not continue to exist without the help of people like you! Thank you again for all that you have done and continue to do to ensure programs like the Blue Knights and Troopers continue to be available for young men and women across the country and around the world.
