Kristin and Cory Gilchrist founded the MindShine Foundation in 2018. Having experienced firsthand the impact mental illness can have on families and in communities, they wanted to become involved in the movement to eliminate stigma and find better solutions surrounding mental health issues. They believe the best way for the MindShine Foundation to have an impact is to help raise awareness about local resources and fundraise for existing organizations. They are excited to host the Brain Run and look forward to continuing their involvement in the mental health arena. Kristin and Cory were both raised in Iowa and met while attending the Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa. They moved to Colorado in 2000. They have four children (ages 12-20) and love the outdoors, spending as much time as possible hiking and skiing with their family.
