Help Katie raise money

For participating in 20th Annual Second Wind Walk/Run

My Story…

Thank you for being here! Any donations to my team to help in the fight against suicide prevention for youth  is so greatly appreciated!!  

I have known the heartache that comes along with those left behind from suicide and I would never wish it upon anyone. This year marks the 19th and 5th year anniversary of my brother and sisters death from suicide. Please join me in honoring their lives by helping save others from such loneliness and pain.

Approaching someone who is struggling can be difficult, but it’s worth the discomfort to help intervene and potentially save a life!  Here’s a few ways to help: ASK-ask the person if they are having thoughts of dying or killing themselves,  LISTEN- listen without judgment to show you care STAY- don’t have the person be alone, make sure they’re in a safe secure environment SECURE- take them seriously and remove all objects that could harm CALL- call 911 or crisis line or national suicide prevention line 


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.
