MORE DETAILS ABOUT 2022 AND ALL THAT WAS ACCOMPLISHED 

  • TWO Law Enforcement & First Responder Run/Ride-Alongs: With each of those runs (Metberry Gulch in Spring & Red Cone in Fall) there were about 8-12 first responders and their families. These runs are our way of helping first responders get out in the backcountry where they are just about forced to disconnect, be in nature, and feel the support and be surrounded by other law enforcement/first responders. Additionally, EPIC 4x4 Quest was able to provide them with pastries in the morning for breakfast and lunch on the trail.
    One e-mail shared after our Fall 2022 run/ride-alongs: "Thank you and your team for the Fall run this past weekend.  We had the best time and it was a much-needed day with great people and the outdoors. Your organization's mission is noble beyond words and so imp
    ortant now more than ever. Thank you!"

  • Mini 4x4 Build for a Deserving LE: Jamie and his wife joined EPIC 4x4 Quest for our first ever Law Enforcement Member Run/Ride-Along. Over the last 4 years, we not only got to learn about Jamie, but also his brother. Jamie was selected as the deserving law enforcement member for the mini 4x4 build as our way to pay tribute to the amazing work Jamie does on a daily basis to serve his community, but to also remember the ultimate sacrifice his brother, Corporal Nate Carrigan, paid. Thanks to the support of The Edge Automotive 4x4 and donation of the lift kit, EPIC 4x4 Quest was given the ability to do a JKS 2.5” lift with Fox 2.0 shocks on Jamie’s jeep. A lift seemed like a fitting symbolism to the fact that EPIC 4x4 Quest and Nate will always be there to help lift Jamie up and have his six! We are grateful to be able to bless Jamie and pay tribute to his brother, Corporal Nate Carrigan.

  • DONATE To Other Nonprofits with Programs that Help Us Meet Our Mission: $20,500 was split about 70% to MC1 Foundation and 30% to Colorado C.O.P.S. MC1 Foundation will use the funds to continue providing support to the Colorado public service employees, i.e. first responders, injured in the line of duty. Colorado C.O.P.S. will use the funds to help survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

  • Caravan For Survivors Supporting & in Conjunction with MC1 Foundation Honor Run: Hosted a Caravan to support MC1 Foundation and join their 9th Annual Honor Run Ceremony showing support for our first responder survivors that were injured in the line of duty. We had about 12 vehicles and raised about $350 from this Caravan alone which was added to total donation to MC1 Foundation!

  • TWO Large Fundraising Trips/Events!: EPIC 4x4 Quest BIG Trips/Events move to a lottery system in 2022. The 4th Annual Event and the 3rd M.O.A.B. Event had more applicants, well over 3 times as many, then the number of slots to be filled! We do feel this style gives more opportunities to those that had not joined prior year and are sticking with this process for 2023.
    The BIG addition for 2022 was the ability to provide a "Free" slot to a randomly selected LE/First Responder for the Annual Event! This too will continue into 2023 thanks to amazing donors like YOU!

  • TWO Crew Runs to Help Raise Funds: Each of our club fundraiser runs filled quickly with a waiting list. Both Holy Cross and Blanca Peak were great experiences with at least 10 rigs signed up for each of those events.
    Thank you Edge Automotive 4x4 for supporting and joining us on these runs!

  • Evergreen Rodeo Parade: We bought out the Board of Directors jeeps all decked out first responder and law enforcement themed items to show support of our local law enforcement and first responders. Letting them know we have their six!

  • Christmas Caravan For Kids: EPIC 4x4 Quest joined with The Edge Automotive 4x4 to host a Caravan to CCFK where we also both had a booth. We lead about 45 vehicles to CCFK main event location to help support Toys For Tots! EPIC 4x4 Quest joined with The Edge Automotive 4x4 to host a Caravan to CCFK where we also both had a booth.

Big Check 2021

Because of our supporter we were able to provide assistance and achieve our goals of helping Law Enforcement Members/First Responders and their families with issues they commonly have to face. Here is a look back at what we were able to accomplish:

  • EPIC 4x4 Quest was able to hold two Law Enforcement Run/Ride-alongs. With each of those runs there were about 8-12 first responders and their families. These runs are our way of helping first responders get out in the backcountry where they are just about forced to disconnect, be in nature, and feel the support and be surrounded by other law enforcement/first responders. Additionally, EPIC 4x4 Quest was able to provide them with pastries in the morning for breakfast and dinner in the evening.

  • We were able to be able to do a "mini" jeep build for two amazing people and retired officers. Bill was forced to medically retire from Brighton PD after having been hit multiple times while doing traffic stops. His spine compressed onto his spinal cord and he woke up unable to feel or move his lower body and arms. Jana, his wife who was also an officer at Brighton PD, was forced to leave her job to help take care of Bill. The jeep gives Bill a way to still get out and explore, take pictures which he loves to do, and be in nature in a way he can’t easily obtain any other way. To top off the surprise of the mini jeep build we were able to take them on a personalized trip to Ouray to teach them the ins and outs of the upgrades.

  • EPIC 4x4 Quest events sold out! The 3nd Annual Event and the 2nd M.O.A.B. Event fill the slots quickly yet again! The events filling quickly had us move to a lottery style selection for the 2022 events to attempt to give more Opportunities to those that previously could not join. Each of our club fundraiser runs filled quickly with a waiting list. Both Holy Cross and Wheeler Lake were great experiences with at least 10 rigs signed up for each of those events.

  • EPIC 4x4 Quest was able to cover all overhead expenses and insurance. Due to the support from sharing, following, donating, buying merch, joining events/run and our amazing sponsors we were able to have an excess of $13,300 to donate to local nonprofits that share our mission of helping law enforcement/first responders and their families. This amount was split about 65% to MC1 Foundation and 35% to Colorado C.O.P.S.! MC1 Foundation will use the funds to continue providing support to the Colorado public service employees, i.e. first responders, injured in the line of duty. Colorado C.O.P.S. will use the funds to help survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

All of this is because of YOU, our supporters and our sponsors! Because of YOU we were able to provide assistance and achieve our goals of helping Law Enforcement Members/First Responders and their families with issues they commonly have to face. During this time of great uncertainty we have been encouraged and humbled by the generosity and support of our community! Thank you f rom the bottom of our hearts! We are proud to have YOU as a part of our EPIC 4x4 Quest Crew.​

During this time of great uncertainty we have been encouraged and humbled by the generosity and support of our community!

EPIC 4x4 Quest was able to hold two Law Enforcement Run/Ride-alongs. With each of those runs there were about 8-12 first responders and their families.

Additionally, EPIC 4x4 Quest was able to provide them with pastries in the morning for breakfast and dinner in the evening. All EPIC 4x4 Quest events sold out! The 2nd Annual Event sold out in under 10 minutes. Despite Covid 19 hitting around the same time as the M.O.A.B. Event registration opening, and being the new event, we were able to still fill up the slots! Each of our fundraiser runs were positive with at least 5-10 rigs signed up for each of those events. EPIC 4x4 Quest was able to cover all overhead expenses and insurance. We were surprised by a 165% increase in cost with insurance, but with your donations, participation in our events, and our amazing sponsors we were able to keep things going! Even with the significant increase to insurance we were able to pass up our goals for 2020! We paid 2020 insurance, have saved up funds to hopefully cover 2021 insurance, were able to get radios to use for our events, and still generate a donation for MC1 Foundation. EPIC 4x4 Quest was able to donate $4680 to MC1 Foundation! MC1 Foundation will use the funds to continue providing support to the Colorado public service employees, i.e. first responders. In 2020, MC1 Foundation was able to provide assistance to 8 public service employees/families, with a total of $34,834 being donated to those families.

2019 Look Back

2019 was an instrumental year for EPIC 4x4 Quest. This was the year, we got everything in place and started officially operating as a nonprofit organization. We opened registration for our Inaugural Annual Event on February 1, 2019, and had all the slots we were hopeful to fill sold out within 5 days. Due to the high demand, we worked to get two additional slots opened to meet the waiting list that occurred. The event took place in August 2019 and went as well as we had hoped, if not actually better. Through this event, we were able to raise $1,520.00 that we then donated to the Colorado Police Officer’s Foundation at the end of the year on December 14, 2019. The Colorado Police Officer’s Foundation and Badge to Badge will be using the funds towards two Trauma Retreats they will be holding in 2020. In addition to our Annual Event, EPIC 4x4 Quest held two Law Enforcement Member Run/Ride-Along events. One took place in summer and other in the fall. These events are near and dear to our hearts as it is away, we directly are able to give back to those that give so much to others! While 2019 was amazing and more than we ever thought possible in year one, we are excited and looking forward to what 2020 holds.
