Gratitude for Grand

Our 3rd Annual Gratitude for Grand: Give a High Five for Health fundraiser, held October 6-12, was a great success!

Through your generous donations, over 180 High Fives were given to individuals, groups, and businesses who help us all thrive and be healthy. Plus, every High Five generates much-needed funds to help us continue to provide access, resources, and support for all our Grand County neighbors. Thank you!

Our organization’s mission is we work in partnership to advocate for and support the health of our community, and this fundraiser is an exciting opportunity to put our mission in action! This unique event supports our individual and community mental health while creating an exciting ripple effect of practicing gratitude for others in our community.
