My Story…

September is Suicide Prevention Month in the United States, but it's a cause we should be aware of year round. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in teens. Funding outreach and education programs, and family support services are an easy and effective way to make a difference in the lives of the young adults and the community.

Please consider joining me for the run or making a donation via my fundraising page.

Thank you for your support!


Help me raise funds for Second Wind Fund! Suicide is currently the leading cause of death for youth  in Colorado. The Second Wind Fund aims to decrease the incidence of suicide in children and youth by removing the financial and social barriers to treatment. SWF’s program is delivered in 30 counties across Colorado, including: Denver, Jefferson, Mesa, Arapahoe and Douglas. To date, their program has served over 5,600 youth since 2002. Your support will help save young lives from suicide! 

Second Wind Fund has a simple formula for levels of financial support. They are capable of saving a young life for every $1,000 received: 

12 therapy sessions x $70 a session = $840 

3 Suicide Ideation Questionnaires = $30

Therapist Travel Reimbursement = $120 

Minimal Administrative Costs = $10

Total = $1,000

Thank you so much for supporting me and Second Wind Fund! No donation is too small. If you need any additional information on Second Wind Fund, please visit their website:
