WiD Denver in Memory of Dan Hohs
WiD Denver in Memory of Dan Hohs

As many of you may know, earlier this fall our fellow WiD member and Board Member, Kristen Ruberg, experienced the tragic loss of her boyfriend, Dan Hohs. 

They were doing what they love: enjoying the outdoors on a weekend hike in Golden. Dan was bitten by a rattlesnake.

Dan’s legacy is one of great encouragement. He was a well-known triathlete with an extreme passion for sharing and promoting mental health awareness and suicide prevention, through an active lifestyle. 

As a group, WiD has decided to contribute to one of his cherished charities: Hope for the Day. “Hope For The Day achieves proactive suicide prevention by providing outreach and mental health education through self-expression platforms.”

If you would like to make a contribution as part of our group : “WiD Denver in Memory of Dan Hohs” please go to https://my.hftd.org/team/148178

This donation group is open to anyone, so please share this link with all who may be interested in contributing.

There are many articles that were written about Dan, such as this one : http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20171010/stevenson-grad-killed-by-snakebite-had-magnetic-personality-mom-says

If you are able to contribute any amount, it will be part of a collective donation from WiD. We will update you on the amount raised mid January. 

We appreciate your generosity in supporting Dan’s memory as well as Kristen.

Improving Hygiene and Sanitation for Girls in Cameroonian Schools

An estimated 40 percent of the population in Cameroon lives below the poverty line. Cameroonian women need reliable access to education to improve their earning potential and the quality of life.   Unfortunately, the lack of access to sanitary facilities and feminine pads have dissuaded many girls from attending school once they reach puberty. By dropping out of school so young, these girls will be subjected to the same cycle of poverty that their grandmothers currently experience.

Lets help over 1,900 young girls end this cycle by:

  • Providing hygiene education and access to safe and private lavatories
  • Constructing a VIP Toilet (private, latrine‐style lavatory) in 10 schools
  • Providing reusable sanitary pads for personal hygiene and sanitation

CDVTA Cameroon is facilitating partnerships between It’s Never 2 Late, Western Home Foundation and other supporting states and/or senior living communities in the U.S. with the villages to raise funding for this project. The funds will be dispersed through CDVTA to ensure the program’s successful completion. Please read the attached proposal for more information on the villages, costs, and nitty gritty of this project.
