The charity that I am fighting and fundraising for is . AFY is an organization that provides Substance Use & Abuse Education services for youth in the greater Boulder County area. I have had AFY’s iLearn program, focused on prevention education, present in my classroom at BHMS for the last 5 years. Their life positive message on Natural Highs has changed my life for the better and I know has made a lasting impact on my students. AFY goes way beyond the “just say no” approach. Their powerful speakers provide a comprehensive understanding of the life choices that can lead down the pathway of addiction as well as empower youth to find a passion that is worth saying no for. I can not say enough great things about this organization and I am excited to help support their mission.
