In the United States, a person dies by suicide nearly every 14 minutes, with an attempt made nearly every minute.  Close to 1 million will attempt suicide this year.

Pedal for Prevention

Ready to join Pedal for Prevention?  Here’s what’s next!

  • Register for the ride (or walk, run, swim, hike – whatever you feel like doing the weekend of September 25-26). Register by September 10 to guarantee your preferred t-shirt size! Your gift supports life-saving suicide prevention and mental health programs in Western Colorado.  We ask that participants select the registration fee that is most comfortable for them:

In 2019, nearly 1,300 Colorado lives were lost to suicide.  Imagine if those deaths had been prevented.  A parent would still have their child.  A spouse still would still have their husband or wife.  A friend would still have their friend.  The loss of a loved one to suicide is painful, as is the anguish experienced by someone contemplating ending their life.

There is help available, but we need YOUR help to ensure that everyone in Western Colorado who is having suicidal thoughts receives the immediate help and care they need.

Through the Pedal for Prevention event, we aim to not only raise awareness of suicide prevention through open dialogue and communication, but to raise necessary funds to continue life-saving programs through Mind Springs Health and West Springs Hospital.
