What did Nevada’s silver miners do before a big day chasing their dreams? They rustled up some grub, and shared tales of striking it rich. Some of them were true, most of them weren’t. But despite the lies, this routine gave a purpose: A full belly, a flame of motivation, and a spark of hope were the ingredients Prospectors needed for the hardships they would overcome the next morning.
Today, that routine remains the same, but now we live in the 21st century. Who says carb-loading can’t be elegant!? Northstar’s chefs will provide a paired 3-course meal to Meeker Wines, specialty cocktails, and Revision Brewing Co Beer.
The High Fives Foundation supports injured mountain action sports athletes through grant funding to be used towards reaching their recovery goals. Since the Foundation’s January 2009 inception, the Empowerment program service has assisted 159 athletes from 31 states in nine respective funding categories which include: living expenses, insurance, travel, health, healing network, adaptive equipment, winter equipment, programs and “stoke” (positive energy, outlook and attitude).
"We are excited to be working with Pete and the cycling community," says Executive Director Roy Tuscany. "It is great to be expanding our outreach through a strong community, athlete and road cycling event. We are looking forward to September 24th."
