I am supporting the Courage Classic bicycle ride in July to help young mental health patients.
In Colorado, suicide is the leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24. Colorado also ranks 48th in accessibility to pediatric mental health services. Clearly, this has to change!
I will be riding to raise awareness and funds for the Pediatric Mental Health Institute. In addition to the local focus, with its Partners for Pediatric Mental Health initiative, Children’s Hospital Colorado also strives to become a role model for other hospitals across the nation.
We have all been affected by mental health challenges, whether it's in our community, a friend, a relative, our child or our own issues. Please join me in being a part of a much needed change!
Just click on the "Donate" button to the right — it will take you fewer than 25 seconds to make a gift.
The Courage Classic is not only a personal challenge, but also an opportunity to support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children. Thanks for helping out! Jay
