Why Emma Coburn Supports Living Journeys

“[My husband, Joe Bosshard, and I] started Elk Run 5k with hopes of bringing people to Crested Butte to run in my favorite place on the planet. We also wanted to give back to the community that we love so much. Living Journeys was the obvious choice for us, as I have been connected to them for over a decade.

In high school, I volunteered for Living Journeys, my mom was on the Board for years and the co-founder is one of my dearest family friends. Beyond my personal connection, Living Journeys exemplifies why Gunnison County is such a special place.

Living Journeys purpose is to help members of the community through their hardest times while they are battling cancer. Living Journeys is the support, the care, and the love that makes this community whole.”
