Dan brite...his story...his mission


Dan Brite


On September 2nd, 2016 Detective Dan Brite responded to a call in Parker, Colorado. A local man was heavily armed and firing randomly at citizens in the community. In that moment, Dan and fellow officers heroically rushed to the scene and quickly engaged the suspect. In the firefight, Dan Brite was critically injured when a bullet struck him in the chest. After being rushed to the local hospital, and with less than a 1% chance of survival, Dan miraculously pulled through. 

In 2018, Dan was presented with an opportunity by a local high school to run a scholarship in his own name. That's when The Dan Brite Community and Courage Scholarship was born. Dan and his wife Christine quickly invited some close friends to create the “Board of Directors”, and they hit the ground running. 

On September 2nd, 2016 Dan’s life was forever changed. But nothing will slow him down. And it is now his life mission to help positively change the lives of others!
