DENVER – The 9Health Fair impacts hundreds of thousands of lives every year and helps families from all over Colorado own their health.

But behind those numbers is a team of people working hard to make it happen from doctors, to the staff, to volunteers and the board members.

One of those members is a man who has dedicated his life to helping others.

Meet Dr. Don Parsons, this year’s Community Health Charities Hero of the year.

The definition of a hero is a person who’s admired for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.

A definition that fits Dr. Parsons perfectly.

He was a general surgeon for 20 years.

He worked in Honduras to provide basic prenatal care to expecting mothers and he was in the peace corps.

He was President of the Colorado chapter of the American Cancer Society and served on the American Lung Association, and public health association for many years… just to name a few.

And he’s been involved with the 9Health Fair for more than 20 years.

Dr. Parsons has worked to make healthcare better not only for the people of Colorado but he’s worked with lawmakers in Washington to make significant change in health care throughout the country.

Melanie Zeitler knew what Dr. Parsons does is special and that’s why she sent in the nomination.

“Well first of all, I believe in community health charities as an organization. They do amazing work throughout Colorado… but Don in particular because over his long, successful career he has just given back and given back and given back,” says Zeitler.

And despite the name on the award, this community hero, Dr. Don Parson is adamant it’s an award for everyone on the board….

“Anytime an award of this sort is given out to an individual, it really is given to a community, a team, a family, a group that has made a difference in the world. I extend my congrats to you as well,” says Dr. Parsons.

The award will be given out Friday morning at the Community Health Charities’ 7th Annual Breakfast, which our 9NEWS Morning Anchor Corey Rose is emceeing.

Sadly, not everyone has the capability of providing for themselves on a regular basis. That is okay since there are a number of people who fall under this category. One of the best virtues of human beings is their compassion which enables charity to be carried out. Being able to share your resources, energy, money or whatever else you have to offer in order to assist individuals who really need it is a way of giving back to the society in a significant manner.

Several religions encourage its congregation to participate in charity activities so as to help their fellow neighbors who are less fortunate. It is the best platform to spread awareness of charity activities and organization available since several people are religious. One does not necessarily have to be religious to give back to the community.

There are people who are kind of heart such that even without any religious affiliations, they still feel the need to do good to individuals who are on the short end of the stick. Charity is a positive act in the society that should be encouraged but with it, a few challenges are experienced. Sadly, there are unprincipled people in positions of power in the charity organization who leech on sympathy.

The donations made by people do not reach the intended destinations and eventually end up in the pockets of corrupt officials. Not only is that a crime but also a very cruel thing to do taking away resources from weak. Also, maybe the person who donated money from their hearts had really worked hard to acquire the funds.

Therefore, people are strongly encouraged to research the organization to find out if they are legit. Given how far fraudsters can go to steal money by setting up sham websites, people are encouraged to follow up on the activities done with the donations made. Building schools and supporting children in their education are some of the intended projects that should be done with the contributions.

Provided by Nicholas K Some of the 2017 fall/winter fashions from Nicholas K designs.
Nicholas K fashion for fall/winter. Velvet cargo pants tie at the ankle. “As wild as that sounds, with boots and a sweater, they will look incredible,” said Terri Garbarini.

The brother-sister team behind the brand Nicholas K aren’t typical fashion creators.

Christopher and Nicholas (who’s also known as Nicole) Kunz say their flowing, draped, often loose-fitting designs are suited to the “urban nomad.” They don’t believe in — or follow — trends. They prefer seasonless clothes to ones that are designed for spring or fall. They’d also rather see customers buy one really great sweater or pair of pants than four or five pieces of clothing that will be discarded within months.

Denverites will get to view Nicholas K’s latest looks on Aug. 5 at the Urban Nights fashion show, which benefits Urban Peak and two other youth charities. The Cherry Creek North boutique Garbarini is the presenting boutique for the show. Owner Terry Garbarini says she has been selling the line since the company started in 2003 because it’s unlike anything else on the market.

The collection, which includes oversized pieces that wrap and drape, is edgy when shown as head-to-toe outfits, but is more versatile when viewed as indivdual items. “We’ll have customers for the crazy pants that wrap and buckle, but we sell more pieces like sweaters and wraps,” Garbarini said. She also lauds the designers’ use of natural fibers and the quality of finished garments.

“From the beginning, her detailing has been impeccable,” Garbarini said of Nicholas, who leads design and production for the collection.

Among the pieces Garbarini will have in her store for fall are velvet cargo pants that tie at the ankle. “As wild as that sounds, with boots and a sweater, they will look incredible,” she said. Boxy jackets, metallic leathers and oversized shirts are among the other pieces that will be in the store — and on the runway.

The Kunzes are based in New York City. Nicholas has an extensive fashion resume, starting with an internship at Donna Karan and then helming the DKNY denim division for men’s and women’s wear. She also consulted for a variety of brands before starting her own company. Because she worked on both men’s and women’s collections, there’s a gender-bending utilitarianism to her designs. Christopher’s eclectic background includes work at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He’s also a craftsman and product designer and has a master’s degree in finance and marketing. He handles the business and customer relations aspects of Nicholas K.

The brand’s edgy styles often are in dark or desert-inspired neutrals and have military-style details. Their father was a flight surgeon, their brother a Navy SEAL, and they grew up in Arizona doing a lot of outdoor activities where clothing and equipment had to function.

“Nomads don’t need a lot of stuff. They have a minimal lifestyle, and they’re transient, like a lot of people today,” Christopher said in a phone interview. “Travel is booming, and people like traveling with fewer things. Just as what your phone does for your life — having a lot of functions and uses — you want clothing that looks good but is versatile and transitional.”

Underscoring Nicholas K’s design philosophy is a desire to step lightly on the planet. The company uses use only natural fibers, including cotton, silk, linen, vegetable-dyed leathers, silk velvet, alpaca and wool. “Most of our dyes are non-toxic and we have an artisan program where we’re trying to convert to all organic dyes,” Nicholas said.

The designers enjoy taking their collection on the road for good causes, as they will do for the Denver show. Earlier this summer, they went to Serbia for a fashion show for disadvantaged youth that was held at the U.S. ambassador’s residence.

“Events are a great way for us to show what we are doing and what changes are being made in the fashion industry,” Christopher said.

While not interested in trends, designer Nicholas always has a point of view to express in her collections. “Our theme for fall-winter was about model diversity and ’90s hip-hop,” she said. “It started with the political climate and what’s going on with election. It led us back to the ’90s because that was a transitional moment and the golden era of hip-hop. There were these militant elements to it.”

They consciously carry styles from one season to the next and try to build versatility into the designs. “We have pieces you can wear four different ways that will take you from the beach to a dressier place. It takes a little longer for consumers to understand that, and we have to educate them, but it’s not something you can get…

Brian Bosworth was not a very good NFL linebacker. But there’s no denying he’s one of the greatest showmen the league has ever seen. That’s why we still talk about a guy who played only three seasons and also how he ended up starring in several movies.

The dude was pretty smart, too. And one anecdote from Jonathan Rand’s The Wildest Stories And Craziest Characters The NFL Has Ever Seen proves that. So on this Throwback Thursday, let’s remember the time Bosworth tricked 10,000 Broncos fans into raising a bunch of money for charity…

Let’s travel back to 1987. We’re just days away from Bosworth making his pro debut with the Seattle Seahawks against the Denver Broncos. Ever the showman, Bosworth decided to call out Broncos star John Elway.

“I can’t wait to get my hands on Elway’s boyish face,” Bosworth told the media.

“He added that he’d rather get penalized for a late hit than let Elway run out of bounds unscathed,” wrote Rand.

This made Broncos fans furious. So furious, about 10,000 fans wore shirts that read “What’s a Boz worth? Nothing” on the front and “Ban the Boz” on the back to the game.

Here’s the thing: Bosworth’s company produced the shirts:

“But if they had looked inside the shirt at the little tag that said Boz 44, Inc., they would have realized they paid fifteen dollars for a shirt made by my company,” Bosworth wrote. “We gave all the profits to the Children’s Hospital. We just wanted to prove how oxygen-deprived Denver fans are.”

Well done, Boz.

Madison, 7, from Denver, has had her hair cut to raise funds for and awareness of Action Duchenne. The hair which has been cut off will now be sent to the Little Princess Trust for use in wigs.

A seven-year-old girl from Denver has raised £250 for charity thanks to a sponsored hair cut.

Madison Ellington decided she wanted to take on the fundraiser to raise awareness of a condition which affects one of her friends.

Madison, 7, from Denver, has had her hair cut to raise funds for and awareness of Action Duchenne. The hair which has been cut off will now be sent to the Little Princess Trust for use in wigs.

The money she has gathered will go to Auction Duchenne which aims to help people living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) – the condition that her five-year-old friend Dexter Ward has.

Madison’s hair was cut shorter by about 35cm at a salon in Cambridge on Saturday, and this will now be donated to the Little Princess Trust which makes wigs for young cancer sufferers.

Mum Teresa said: “I’m so very proud of her.”

A seven-year-old girl is to have her luscious locks chopped off to raise awareness of a condition which affects one of her friends.

Madison Ellington, from Denver, is to have her long hair cut short on Saturday to increase knowledge of and raise money for Action Duchenne – a charity which aims to help people living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).

Mum Teresa said Madison decided to take on the challenge for her five-year-old friend Dexter Ward, who has the muscle-wasting condition.

As well as having her hair cut much shorter, Madison will also be donating the snipped off locks to the Little Princess Trust which creates wigs for young cancer sufferers.

Teresa said: “She wants to raise support for Action Duchenne, and when she saw a leaflet in a local hairdressers salon advertising the Little Princess Trust, she raised a desire to help both charities.

“She is excited and nervous and has already said about doing other fundraising events in the future.”

Madison will be having at least 35cm of her 53cm-long hair cut off during a special event at a Cambridge salon on Saturday.

“Sadly few people living with DMD will get to see their 30th birthday. Currently there are no treatments or cure for the disease although, with more funding and research, one day this could become possible,” Teresa added.

Madison is no stranger to fundraising, and will also be running Race For Life for Cancer Research UK for the second time next month.

She has already surpassed her £100 target for the haircut, but you can help her raise even more by visiting:

With all the recent publicity about frauds and scams in some charities, it can be difficult to discern which charities are legitimate and which aren’t. There are several Denver charities which are listed in Charity Navigator and which are known to be legitimate organizations doing good work. There is no single charity Denver residents seem to prefer, so which one you choose will depend on your own requirements.

If you are ready to start giving back to your community, there are some things you should consider. First, when you are checking into charities in Denver, verify they are legitimate organizations before you donate. To do this you should check online to see if they are a 501c3 organization. Also, check with the Better Business Bureau for any complaints or penalties against the charity. Next, ask family and friends if they have given to the organization. Also, check for online reviews of the charity and then call them and ask about their mission and how they use donations they receive.

Another good place to verify a charity is Guidestar or Charity Navigator. These are both online sites where legitimate charities post their tax returns and other information that helps donors decide where to donate.

It is important to discover exactly what the non-profit has accomplished. Most charities will produce an annual report and many will post these online. Some will also make their financial statements public and reviewing these can help you determine how the charity spends its money, including donations.

There are also some personal questions to answer before selecting a Denver charity. First, is the charity’s mission something you believe in? Are you willing to help with just money or can you also volunteer some time?

When you are looking for the charity Denver supports, take the time to do your research. Find a charity you believe in and where you believe your donation will be put to best use.
