Friends of CAIC Launches $150,000 fundraising campaignPosted: March 7, 2014
We have had 7 fatalities thus far this season including the most recent, which happened yesterday in Southern Colorado. Our sincerest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim. Numerous accidents have happened throughout Colorado and we recently saw an avalanche cycle that was one of the largest in 30 years. It has been and continues to be a very busy season.
The Colorado Avalanche Information Center’s Backcountry Avalanche Forecasting program is small but mighty. The CAIC operates on limited funding and they do incredible work with what they have. Colorado is a very big place and there are more and more people enjoying the State’s spectacular winter backcountry each year. We deserve the best avalanche center in the country. To achieve this goal we need everyone’s support. The State of Colorado is incredibly supportive and has increased the CAIC’s funding. But to really grow, we need you involved. This private public partnership is the best way we can expand the CAIC’s backcountry forecast program and I am personally asking you to support avalanche forecasting and education throughout the State of Colorado. In fact, to show how strongly I feel about the CAIC’s backcountry forecasting program, I will kick off the campaign with my own $200 donation.
Starting today and for the next 7 weeks the Friends of CAIC will be offering prizes, challenges, and incentives, to anyone who donates $25 or more. Click here for more information or to DONATE NOW!
