Every year, April serves not only as a reminder of why Realities For Children exists, but as the kick off of our busiest event season. As many of you know, the month of April is National Child Abuse Prevention & Awareness Month and in just a matter of days we’ll be honoring many in our community who are leading that fight at our 21st Annual Human Service Awards Gala. We’re also looking ahead to the Realities Ride & Rally coming up on Memorial Day weekend. This two-day festival and Guinness World Record Motorcycle Poker Ride is our single biggest annual event, bringing thousands of riders, music-lovers and families together to celebrate freedom and to give a voice to children who have been silenced by abuse and neglect. See page 8 for more information on this exciting event. We strive to make each of our events the very best of its kind and our guests always have a great time, however, these events are so much more than fun. In 2017, our signature events raised over $336,000. Because of our Business Members and Event Sponsors, 100% of the money raised at these events directly benefits northern Colorado children at-risk. This means every person who attends a Realities For Children event is helping meet the needs of children in our community! Not only do our events provide the emergency funds to meet critical needs, but each event is a collaborative endeavor uniting a team of dedicated volunteers, local businesses, service organizations and community members who are all invested in helping change the lives of local children in need. If you’ve already been a part of one of our events, you know the power of this kind of team and we thank you for your support! If not, I hope you will come check us out this Memorial Day weekend at the Realities Ride & Rally. Joyce Dickens
