IN LOVING MEMORY OF KYLE MATHEW BELSTRA 8/7/92-8/12/17
Support Kyle's Krew as we walk to fight suicide, in the Out of the Darkness Fort Collins Walk!
We are joining the community of nearly 250,000 people walking in hundreds of cities across the country, in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. Please help us reach our fundraising goal!
Join us for our next fundraising event!
We’re delighted to be uniting with the Westminster Park Center Lounge in order to bring you a drag show fundraiser, featuring a silent auction!
The show will be on July 13 at 4pm, with doors opening at 3. Stick around afterward for karaoke. Admission is free, but bring cash for tipping and for any donations you’d like to make. Visit early for dibs on the best auction items.
Can’t make it? Want to help more? You can also donate online! All donations are 100% tax deductible and will help bring AFSP one step closer to achieving their bold goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025.
To donate online via our AFSP Team Page, please select "Roster" and then choose one of the team members listed. Once you're on their page, click "Donate Now." Donations can only be directed on behalf of individual team participants, but the total each participant raises goes toward our team goal.
As part of leading Kyle’s Krew, Joana also created and maintains the Memorial Wall Project, which is a photo collection commemorating thousands of individuals who fell victim to suicide. Their names and photos were submitted by their loved ones, from all over the world. The Memorial Wall Project helps to preserve the individuality of these victims rather than allowing them to be reduced to a number, and it serves to convey the massive weight of loss more deeply to observers at AFSP walks and other fundraising events.
To submit your loved one’s name and photograph for inclusion in the Memorial Wall, reach out to Joana directly at KylesKrewColorado@gmail.com.
