Second Wind Fund 

Second Wind Fund began in 2002 as a response to a tragedy of the suicide of four students at a Jefferson County high school in a nine-month time frame. In response to these four suicides, three members of a local faith community, Jeff LaMontagne, Dr. Majorie Laird, and Scott Fletcher organized a community "walk-run" event to show their desire to stand with the school.  It was decided that the money raised would be used to provide access to professional counseling services to youth at risk for suicide. 

Their Mission is to decrease the incidence of suicide by removing financial and social barriers to treatment for at-risk youth by the funding of direct counseling services to youth in Boulder County. The $10,000 donation from Larry H. Miller Toyota Boulder will aid in their efforts.
