Our story…

Please consider donating to this worthy cause. I have been a part of 2nd Wind since the beginning. They have so many wonderful resources for teens to save lives. I am walking in memory of my sister Bonnie whom I lost at the young age of 12. Please join me in walking and/or donating towards this worthy cause dear to my heart.


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:
