Since we lost Jesse to suicide in 2010, we have been working to prevent teen suicide in any way that we can. This year will be Team Jesse's 7th year fundraising for the EMERGE 5K in support of the Second WInd Fund of Boulder County (SWFBC). Over the course of that time, we have raised well over $20,000. These funds allow youth ages 7-19 who are uninsured or underinsured to access mental health care when they are at risk for suicide. With suicide now the leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24 in Colorado, it is not surprising that requests for services are up over 75% in the last 2 years. SWFBC has counseled over 475 young people over the years and never lost one to suicide. We can support our youth in coming through the other side of their struggle with resilience and a renewed passion for life. Please help us!!!
