posted by: Gretchen
I love where I live. Not just because of the great things I think so many know about – the sunny weather, the outdoor lifestyle, the access to great theater, and all of those things. But more important – the generous people! Last Tuesday was GivingTuesday. But this Tuesday, December 5 is Colorado Gives Day with an additional $1 Million Incentive Fund.
For free holiday events, be sure to go to our event calendar.

PeakMed is like Netflix for health care. It provides unlimited family practice medicine using an affordable monthly-membership model that doesn’t bill insurance. With PeakMed there are no co-pays or doctor bills requiring you to cover what insurance doesn’t. Members can see their physician during clinic hours or communicate (via text, email, video chat or phone) with their doctor 24/7 for illness, disease management, physicals and preventative care. When your family frequently visits the doctor, the membership fee pays for itself and can save you money on after-hours urgent care or emergency room visits. Visit PeakMed.com for more information or to become a member.
