It is now 7 1/2 years since we lost our Jesse to suicide. He would be 23 now, turning 24 this summer. Sometimes it feels like so very long ago that he was here with us, and sometimes, when I see a group of boys walking down the street, pass a favorite restaurant that we went to together, or even just see zip off pants for boys at COSTCO, it all seems like yesterday.
I feel strongly that with community support and therapy for those who are struggling with suicidal thoughts, we can substantially reduce the risk of suicide. Please come out and be a part of our community in raising funds so that these youth can get free counseling even if they do not have financial resources. The Second Wind Fund of Boulder County matches youth with a counselor on an emergent basis and pays for the counseling. They are unsung heroes, as are all of the youth who struggle and ask for help. You can be a hero too! Join Team Jesse for the 5K and/or donate so that we can help as many youth as possible!
