Toby Bethel | Florence Police Officer

Corporal Bethel was shot in the line of duty and paralyzed in September of 2001. Toby has been coping with his injury, both physically and mentally for 17 years and sharing his story at churches and other community organization, and visits police academies to provide an opportunity for cadets to critique and analyze the actions that led to a near-fatal injury to keep our future first responders safer in the line of duty. Earlier this year, Toby was sworn into Florence Police Department as an honorary corporal and has continued to serve his community with the same passion and commitment he had two decades ago.

Tony & Luke | Hug it Forward Concert

Hug It Forward is a US based non-profit that is building “Bottle Schools” in Guatemala. There is no waste

management system in this under-developed country and consequently there is trash everywhere. Hug It Forward

partners up with small villages in Guatemala and volunteers from all over the world to stuff trash in plastic soda bottles,

line them up with chicken wire, encase them in concrete and build schools out of them. So far over 120 schools have

been completed. The Hug It Forward Concert will feature some of Colorado Springs finest local musicians to raise money and awareness

for what they are doing in Guatemala. This is a family friendly event, so bring the kids and the grandparents. Seating is general

admission, so be sure to arrive early!
