Grief-Stricken Children Provided With Much-Needed Support at Judi’s House

Former college MVP and pro football player Brian Griese founded Judi’s House as a way to commemorate his mother’s death – a loss Brian endured at the tender age of just 12 years old.  In 2002, Griese opened the doors to Judi’s House so that other children, from age 3 to 23 would not have to endure the same kind of singular pain that he endured when his mother died of breast cancer.  I too have experienced the same after losing both my parents and grandparents as a teenager – so this cause is especially dear to my heart.

Located in Denver, Colorado the non-profit organization has helped hundreds of children through the grieving process through activity, group support and camaraderie.  Each year they host their signature event at the beautiful Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs.  With a long list of activities for the children and their families, the event lasts the entire weekend and is packed with things like swimming, golf and tennis plus lots of food and fun. Saturday evening entails a nice dinner and a movie for the children.  This year the event will take place on June 23 and June 24 – to register visit http://jhcelebration.com/

Also at the event will be an opportunity to learn more about what the program has to offer and how you can get involved.  In fact, I have been personally involved for quite some time, volunteering my time to do various things such as assisting in grief support groups, fund raising for the organization or even helping with meals for children and the facility’s caregivers.

To continue to receive communications from this amazing group of organization you can register for their newsletter.  We invite you to come volunteer, come donate time or financial resources and get directly involved.  The website also has plenty of useful information.

There is nothing more dear to my heart than being able to help lift the burdens off so many children that have endured the unthinkable pain and loss of losing someone they love.  I applaud Brian’s drive and ambition – and I am honored to be so personally connected with this organization.  If you want to get involved, please feel free to call me directly on my cell phone (303.523.4364) and I will personally ensure you get in touch with the right person at Judi’s House.
