About Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc.
At Share, bereaved parents find comfort in friendship, strength in shared experiences and hope for healing and
happiness. If you or a loved one are suffering from an infant or pregnancy loss, please call the National Share Office at 800-821-6819 or visit www.nationalshare.org to receive the support you and your loved ones deserve. Donations are appreciated and vital to continue the important work of Share.
It all started with a question from former District Attorney Bob Gallagher, “How can we better serve child victims of sexual assault and other crimes in ways that the criminal justice system cannot?” To answer the question, Gallagher formed a committee of over 100 members from across the community, including child- serving agencies, law enforcement, child protective services, medical and mental health professionals, and private citizens. Together, they worked tirelessly to find the right solution for our community. In 1993, Children’s Advocacy & Family Resources, Inc. was incorporated as a Colorado not-for-profit organization. In 1996, they opened their first facility in a bright yellow house with a white fence, giving the organization its nickname and the name by which you know it today, SungateKids. In the years since they first opened, they have served more than 17,000 child victims of abuse and their non-offending family members. Much has changed since 1993—the programs and staff have grown and, since 2011, they have a new home. But one thing that has never changed is their commitment to their mission and to helping victims heal, survive, and thrive. SungateKids never charges families for any of their services; getting help to children and families is the sole focus. But they cannot do this alone, they need your help, now more than ever! They rely on community support to help them help those who need their services the most. For more information or to donate, please visit www.sungatekids.org.

About Quin Houff
Born: 9/15/97 // Hometown: Weyers Cave, VA // Twitter: @P1_Houff
NASCAR Driver Quin Houff raced his way to the Cup Series with determination and Virginia-style work ethic. Coming from a family business of 80 years strong, Houff knows the value of loyalty and getting your elbows greasy. Houff’s zeal for racing started small with go-karts with his father. His excitement grew and his family helped him begin his lifelong passion at the young age of eight. Although Houff enjoys golf, the outdoors, and spending time with his family, racing has always taken the driver’s seat in his life. Houff has shown impressive results already in NASCAR’s top two series with a 12th place finish at Iowa, a top 15 finish at Bristol Motor Speedway (NASCAR’s fastest short track) and most recently, a 13th place finish in the October 2020 Cup race at Talladega. 2021 marks Houff’s second full time season in the 00 Cup car.
