FROM COLLAPSE TO COMEBACK:
In 2008 as the world economy was spiraling out of control, Scott Helmer sat alone in his car on a deserted mountain road in Northern Arizona with a gun in
his mouth, ready to take his own life.
Helmer had enjoyed a successful career as an insurance broker, but when financial markets took a turn for the worse earlier that year, his world also began
to crumble. At a crossroads and in a foolish, desperate attempt to save his business, he illegally used monies in his companies trust account to keep the
doors open and weather the storm. In the end, he was unsuccessful and ended up losing everything including his family, all of his possessions, his career and
most importantly his self-respect as he was indicted for his crimes and faced time in prison.
"Everyone must hear Scott Helmer's story."
- Tom Barnard o National Radio Hall of Fame Broadcaster
In the seconds before pulling the trigger Helmer cried out to God for help and said, "I don't want to do this. If you help me through this I won't give up, will
deal with the consequences of my actions and use all of this bad stuff to help others and to make a difference so that no one else has to go through what I
am going through right now."
Helmer then put the gun down, decided to never give up and took responsibility for his actions. Determined to keep his promise, Helmer then picked up his
guitar and began a mission that continues to this day; using his talents and first love of music to give back and spread the message that there is always
hope and that suicide is not the answer, regardless of your mistakes.
On November 28 & 29, 2016, Helmer's 'Never Give Up' Tour included an attempt to set a Guinness World Records title for "Most Live Music Performances in 24
Hours (multiple cities)." Helmer successfully completed 12 concerts across California and Arizona in the 24-hour time frame and now holds the title. Designed
to raise awareness for Helmer's mission and message, and each participating venue was given the opportunity to fundraise for a cause of their choice
alongside his history-making attempt.
Since 2012 Helmer's concerts have helped raise more than $2 Million Dollars for good causes across America ranging from military veterans and their
families, equine and pet rescues, food banks, non-profit theatres, suicide and crisis prevention, special needs children and adults, high schools and colleges,
