Are you tired of seeing lives lost to overdose, addiction, abuse, incarceration, and a gazillion other effects of trauma? Do you wish you could make an impact but you don't know how? Do you want to bring awareness, but you recognize awareness by itself changes nothing, and you don't know how you can actually help? You've come to the right place.
When you host or sponsor an Ignite U1 Awareness & Action event, you're not just drawing attention to important issues, but you actually part of the solution. While awareness is important, we've come to understand that awareness without action accomplishes nothing. Millions of Americans live every day haunted by the indiscriminate effects of trauma. It doesn't matter what zip code you live in, what kind of car you drive, or how much is in your bank account -- at the end of the day, everyone looks the same covered in mud.
When you help us raise funds by helping raise awareness, you enable our team to GO into the spaces where those needs most passionate for you can be addressed. We will invest ourselves in getting to know your passion so we meet your desired impact. Your partnership is vital to delivering transformation that lasts. And that is our goal.

We are always looking for projects to support with our workshops and speakers. Your interest in igniting hope in darkened spaces combined with our ability to do so is a magical combination. We encourage you to contact us with your interest in hosting or sponsoring an event. Next, we will set up a 15-minute discovery call to determine if we are a good fit for each other.
Get Muddy:
The annual MudFactor 5K is a true reflection of both adversity and the human ability to overcome. Real obstacles, real dirt, and all the nastiness of life wrapped up in a 5K run/walk. Join our team and do the Mud Run with us in Dallas, TX or host us and we'll come to you! Together we can raise awareness about the destructive cycles of intergenerational trauma, and more importantly we can do something about it.

Everyone looks the same covered in mud - and everyone can step under the same firehose to get washed off! Joining us for a Mud Run or hosting one in your geographic area will inspire you to experience the nastiness of life, empower you to overcome the slippery slope, and remind you that even through the nastiness of life, you've always got a team that will stick out a hand and pull you through to a successful life. :

  • Everyone looks the same covered in mud: Trauma does not discriminate.
  • The same firehose washes it all off: Your support system is everything.
  • Overcoming the slippery slope: The power of a firm first step
  • The nastiness of life: The right team lends a hand and pulls you through.
  • Ignite you first: It's where change begins

    When I learned that my team would spend a day with teens who have gone through trauma, addiction, and abuse, I knew I had to share my story. Even though I've struggled at times to find purpose for my own battles with each of those, having the chance to encourage others through Ignite opened my eyes. For the first time, I realized that maybe I had been allowed to go through such pain so I could be the one to ignite hope for someone else. It was such a freeing experience for me. Ignite helped me see a bigger picture and a greater purpose. I know very personally the Ignite U1 impact has on lives.

    When I had the chance to sit down and speak with Judy & Katie about doing something that would directly impact teens that have gone through trauma, addiction, and abuse, I knew right away Your BluePrint Life had the potential to be in a supporting role with Ignite U1. Since our goal is to establish a foundation on which a beautiful life can be built, even after a setback in life. The fact that you hold the blueprint means it can be rebuilt. So, I'm thankful for Ignite U1 giving me this opportunity. I hope others will also join to support Ignite U1.

    I often say that if we had more 'Ignites' around the world, we could change the world. Now that I live in the USA and see the many issues here, I believe that even more.
    I lost a close friend to an overdose, and I can only wish a program like Ignite U1 had been available for her. She would have found hope, like I did, through Ignite and she would have been inspired to choose a different future. I am so thankful that others who are desperate for hope will see role models like Katie using their experiences to ignite purpose. Lives are truly being changed by Ignite U1.
You can help ignite hope.
