Congratulations to the 2017 Kempe Honor Award Winners

On Saturday, April 22, during Kempe Imagine – a signature dinner event honoring the 45-year history of Kempe and celebrating its vision for the future – Kempe was proud to recognize three individuals as the 2017 Kempe Honor Award winners.

In honor of his 40-year career dedicated to keeping children and families safe, healthy and supported, Kempe awarded David Olds, Ph.D. the 2017 Kempe Professional Award. Dr. Olds is Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado Denver where he directs the Prevention Research Center for Family and Child Health. He is also the creator of the Nurse-Family Partnership Program, a leading model in maternal-child health programs being implemented in communities across the country. His dedication to the field is unparalleled and we are grateful for all he has done in support of children and families.

For their similar passion for causes devoted to children and education, Kempe recognized Blair and Kristin Richardson as the 2017 Imhoff Family Community Award winners. For 22 years, Blair and Kristin have demonstrated a philanthropic commitment to the Denver community contributing their time, talent and treasure to numerous organizations and causes. The values of the Richardson family and their foundation are aligned with the importance of family, community building and providing opportunity to all children regardless of economic circumstances. We are grateful for their ongoing support of Kempe and other like-minded organizations.
