“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”
Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership has been fighting diligently for 26 years to unite our community in the mission of preventing suicide. It hasn’t always been easy but all of us involved know just how great and important our mission is. In the face of adversity we promise to fight harder. As the saying goes, nothing worth fighting for comes easy. This fight IS worth it.
As evidence of that fighting spirit and with great pleasure the Board of Directors of PPSPP is very excited to announce the newest member of our team: our new Executive Director, Cassandra Walton.
Cassandra is no stranger to PPSPP having served as a volunteer for the last several years. The knowledge and skill set that she brings to the table is impressive but her passion for our mission is unparalleled.
Please join the Board of Directors in welcoming Cassandra to the Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership.
