My Story…

Team David honors the memory of our son, David Wylie, who completed suicide as a 21 year old CU Boulder student in 2002. He was very loved by all who knew him and continues to be very missed. We support Second Wind and youth suicide prevention in the hope that other families won't have to suffer the loss that our's did. Mental health counseling works! We just wish that David had taken the opportunity to give it a chance. Thank you for supporting this wonderful organization and important cause.


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
