Winter park Ski Patrol Hosts Convention to Benefit SSF

A HUGE shout-out to the Winter Park Ski Patrol for hosting the annual National Ski Patrol Convention at Winter Park Resort. The proceeds from this event were donated to Shining Stars Foundation, enough to sponsor an entire family for one year!

The Snowmass Patrol Foundation presented the Shining Stars Benefit Hockey Game on March 9th this year at the Aspen Ice Garden. The event featured a Ski School v. Ski Patrol match, food, drinks, beer, door prizes, on-ice activities and more. Thank you to all who came out and participated! 


Ryndi and Riley's Grand Traverse!

Shining Stars Program Director Ryndi Zastrow and her boyfriend Riley completed an amazing feat this Winter - she raced in the inimitable Grand Traverse Backcountry Ski Race from Crested Butte to Aspen. Way to go, Ryn and Riley! The duo raised money for Shining Stars leading up to the race.

Kids helping kids

At the 2019 Aspen Winter Games, a small group of Shining Stars kids visited Aspen Country Day School, Aspen Middle School and Aspen High School and spoke to the students there about the physical, social and emotional challenges that children with cancer face on a daily basis. Also, thanks to students from Aspen Country Day for raising awareness and money for Shining Stars with a bake sale. We also had a very enthusiastic group of cheerleaders from Aspen Elementary School at the 2019 Winter Games Race Day!  We love our student volunteers - thank you!
