About This Activity

"There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children." - Nelson Mandela

EMERGE: Helping our Youth Soar 5K Run/Walk is an empowering experience designed to raise awareness of youth suicide prevention efforts and support to our youth. It is a celebration of our youth and the power that they hold to make a valuable difference in our world. Join us in helping them soar! Proceeds support the Second Wind Fund of Boulder County. Second Wind is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide free counseling services to at risk youth in Boulder County. The event is also designed as an opportunity for remembrance of those we've lost to suicide and a celebration of all who choose life.
