MTech Raises $100K for Suicide Awareness

MTech Mechanical held its 4th Annual Samborski Memorial Clay Shoot on Saturday, August 26 at Kiowa Creek Sporting Clays. MTech donated a total of $100,000 between the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Colorado & Rocky Mountain Crisis Partners.

“The statistics regarding suicide rates within the construction industry are deeply concerning. Within our industry, our colleagues face a staggering 10-fold higher risk of succumbing to suicide compared to the ‘fatal four’ causes of workplace fatalities (falls, being struck by objects, electrocutions, and being caught in/between hazards).” said MTech President, Marco Capitelli. “Our commitment to upholding Bill Samborski’s legacy and promoting awareness of mental health and suicide will endure through this event for many years to come.”

Over 200 individuals were able to participate in this event that included a 15-station clay shooting course. The fun day included breakfast, lunch and multiple raffle drawings that raised over $4,000 the day of the event. The top three clay shooting teams were awarded to KM Sales, GT Sanders & Haselden Construction respectively.

“It is our honor to be selected as a beneficiary for the Samborski Memorial Clay Shoot. We at Rocky Mountain Partners (RMCP) are truly touched by the commitment demonstrated by MTech Mechanical to raise awareness of mental health/substance use challenges and suicide prevention. RMCP is the provider of Colorado Crisis Services and 988, both support lines to talk with individuals and concerned others 24/7 about mental and health and suicidal ideation concerns. Answering a crisis line is hard work and requires extensive training and self-care. We are committed to using a portion of the proceeds raised to fund a new scholarship for our organization – the Bill Samborski Memorial Scholarship – which will fund one of our team members to pursue a professional conference or continuing education in the ever-changing area of suicide prevention. The remaining funds will go directly to answering the call for Coloradans by supporting our 988/CCS operation.” – Bev Marquez, president/CEO, Rocky Mountain Crisis Partners

“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to MTech Mechanical for their remarkable display of kindness and generosity during this fourth annual event. Their dedication and efforts in ensuring the success of this clay shoot are greatly appreciated, and we thank them wholeheartedly for their support of SPCC,” SPCC Board of Directors.
