Help Melissa raise money

For participating in 20th Annual Second Wind Walk/Run


Support me in raising funds for Second Wind Fund! Suicide is currently the leading cause of death for youth in Colorado. Second Wind Fund aims to decrease the incidence of suicide in children and teenagers by removing the financial and social barriers to treatment. Second Wind Fund's program is delivered in 30 counties across Colorado, including: Denver, Jefferson, Mesa, Arapahoe and Douglas Counties. To date, Second Wind Fund's program has served over 6,400 youth. Your support directly helps us save young lives from suicide.

Your Impact

Your support helps to save lives. Second Wind Fund is capable of saving a young life from suicide for every $1,000 received:

12 therapy sessions at $70 a session = $840
3 Suicidal Ideation Questionnaires (SIQs) = $30
Therapist travel reimbursement = $120
Minimal administrative costs = $10

Total = $1,000
