On January 25th Sleep Tight Colorado Turned Three! It still feels like yesterday that I had the idea to start Sleep Tight Colorado (STC). The support of my familyand friends inspired me to spring into action. Within a few months STC was up and running with an informative and interactive website, a Facebook page with a growing number of followers and “likes,” and most importantly, 501(C)3 status.

The Close of Another Great Year

As 2012 is nearly at its end, I want to take a moment to thank all of my friends, family, and volunteers for your continued support. Without you, Sleep Tight Colorado would not continue to grow. We had great turn outs at this year's 2 fundraising events, a dinner at Stella's where we received a portion of the evening's sales and the Second Annual 5K Pajama Jog in City Park.
