Letter: Smith, Nelson, Thanks for support of Hike for Spencer

Thanks for support of Hike for Spencer

We had another very successful Hike for Spencer this year despite the weather. Your support and attendance is greatly appreciated. We want to thanks our local sponsors Winter Park Resort, Winter Park Competition Center, the Rendezvous Foundation, Winter Park Fraser Valley Rotary Club, JVA and McConnell Printing. With your support, we are able to give back to the local community that meant so much to Spencer. Giving back to this community in his name helps us keep his legacy and spirit alive. We unfortunately cannot change what happened that day, but we can try to do good things in his honor.

The Spencer Nelson Fund was established to help Grand County youth who otherwise would not be able to participate in the Winter Park Competition Center. In the past five years the Spencer Nelson Fund helped over 140 Grand County athletes with over $195,000 in scholarship funds and funding to help athletes with thousands in travel costs as they attain the national level of competition in their sport.

This year with your help, we believe that we raised our goal of $50,000. This will go a long way to help deserving young boys and girls, as they pursue their dreams. Thank you, we couldn’t have done this without your support! We hope that you will join us again in 2017.

Peggy Smith, Peter and Connor Nelson
