2nd Wind Fund of Metro Denver (2011)

Yes, we (the Colorado Shepard Family) are trying to help raise money again for the 2nd Wind Fund of Metro Denver. If you are my facebook friend, you might have already seen me post our fund-raising page. I also personally messaged some of you. At the time I am typing this into the computer, a couple generous people have donated and I have had several more let me know that they will donate.

The mission of Second Wind Fund of Metro Denver (SWFMD) is to decrease the incidence of teen suicide by removing financial and social barriers to treatment for at-risk youth. Personally, I cannot think of anything more tragic than kids committing suicide. This year is 2nd Wind's 10th anniversary of their fund-raising festival / run / walk. If you are a Denver-area resident, it is worth coming and checking out at the Jefferson County fairgrounds on Sunday, September 18th.

If you are not participating, PLEASE consider dropping by our fund-raising page and making a donation.

Last year, the family raised $1,275.
The year before, we raised $1,100.
It would obviously be nice to beat those numbers this year. If you can help out, please do.
