We started running...
"I have trekked in mountains all over Colorado and elsewhere in the world wanting to challenge myself. I love to work and struggle to get to the top of a peak." - George
"I too have enjoyed hiking in New England, Colorado, and where ever our family vacations are spent. The mindfulness practice of each step and the challenge of each route are healing and energizing." - Jennifer
We're running because...
"I had the honor of doing the traverse with Jen last year. What a wonderful day! How intense it was. Climbing 5 peaks! Over 6,000 vertical feet of altitude! 19 miles covered as we trudged in, at the end of the day at Ryan Wellness Center." - George
"Last year, we learned something about testing ourselves like this for a worthy cause. What was amazing was that when we were hot, tired, exhausted, we kept finding the strength to push on. This was not for us! This was for others suffering from despair, depression, fear, hopelessness and plagued by suicidal ideation! Given enough community effort and resources, we can effectively combat this problem.
We need to support initiatives like this now, more than ever as all of us are simultaneously facing a pandemic that is creating more anxiety, struggle and social isolation. So, when the opportunity arose, of course we were going to raise our hands! We are excited that we are going to be team mates again working hard for suicide prevention." - Jennifer
