Giving youth a chance

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:

Aspen Grassroots Experience would like to thank Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club, Gorsuch Ltd. and D&E for their generous support.

This past winter, 21 of our RFV Latino youth were granted scholarships and the invitation to participate in AVSC’s SnoWarriors six-week program. Gorsuch Ltd. and D&E kindly donated the use of ski/snowboard equipment for the season, which enabled them to participate.

So many of our youth live in this beautiful valley, but don’t get to take advantage of it as skiers or snowboarders due to the financial burden. Thanks so much for giving our youth this chance. Not only did they learn to ski and/or snowboard, but they increased their confidence, learned to set goals for themselves and made new friends. They can’t wait until next year!

Keep up the good work, AVSC, Gorsuch and D&E!

Sarah Blangsted
