Please join us in recognizing the incredible team at Dutch Bros for their amazing Bucks for Kids donation of $1 of every drink sold to the Friends in September. We appreciate all of the participating locations and we are happy to call them a community partner.
Putting together a huge cycling event to raise money for the Friends nonprofit is not easy. Yet, every year Team Wheels of Justice and now Mi Duole Cycling take on the incredible undertaking of the 5 Canyons Bike Challenge to help our organization not just survive, but thrive.
It is with a humble heart and deep appreciation for their effort, and donation that we say “Thank You” to their executive team, the volunteers that help make the event successful and the dedicated riders who participate every year. Their strength and determination directly helps the Friends support the CJC in their mission to bring hope, healing and justice to child victims of abuse and their families.
We look forward to a fantastic 2024 as we celebrate the 40 year anniversary of this great cycling organization. Thank you for helping us turn trauma into resilience for small voices who need our help to feel safe sharing their story.
Over the years, EDGEhomes has been a valued sponsor of the Friends nonprofit and a fierce advocate of our mission. In November, Friends Executive Director, Angela Martindale and the was able to meet with EDGEhomes Director of Marketing and Public Relations, Jessica Bryce for a tour of the Children’s Justice Center in downtown Salt Lake and a check presentation to follow. It is always an empowering and humbling experience to be able to show our sponsors and partners how their donations and contributions are used. Join us in thanking the EDGEhomes team for their commitment to our cause. We could not do it without them!

Each of you holds a special place in our hearts. Your compassion and dedication weave brightness into the lives of the families we support. As the season envelops us, may the radiance of these moments fill your homes with joy and warmth, just as you've brought light to ours.
