It has been my great honor to fundraise for SHIELD616 for the last 4+ years. I have also had the privilege to share this most valuable non-profit’s story as a television reporter and team member of the SHIELD616 Bicycle Team, that works every year to raise money for first responders riding the state of Colorado border to border over 4 days. The story of the hard work of SHIELD616 to outfit peace officers, paramedics, EMTs and other first responders nationwide with the protection they need if they have to respond to an active shooter situation has been one of the most important aspects of my work as a journalist in Colorado Springs. I hope you will join me in supporting SHIELD616 in any way you can!

We cannot adequately express our gratitude to this outstanding organization, whose staff continuously proves to be of the utmost professionalism and integrity – while enthusiastically carrying out their worthwhile purpose. Thanks to the generosity and support of Shield 616, our ministry is able to carry out our own mission. Essentially, Shield 616 provides shields for officers’ physical protection (at no cost!), and their Bibles have allowed us to provide a spiritual shield for them as well. If anyone is considering a donation to this organization, we whole-heartedly recommend that they do so.

We are continuing to respond to an increasing number of suspects armed with rifles. Our soft armor really only protects against pistol rounds, 45, 9mm, 10mm/.40 etc. Doesn’t even do that great against stab attacks. These plates will stop all of those.

SHIELD616 stands out as one of the premier nonprofit organizations in existence. Their mission revolves around supplying vital life-saving equipment to our first responders. Jake and Marcy, without a doubt, are two of the most remarkable individuals you’ll ever encounter. Their dedication to facilitating the distribution of protective vests to the agencies in need is unwavering. They are consistently just a phone call, text message, or email away, ready to assist with any questions or innovative ideas you may have.
