STRATTON MOUNTAIN, Vt.
Stratton Mountain in Southern Vermont is involved in a variety of philanthropic initiatives. Recognizing a need in the local community, paired with the great potential for positive impact, The Stratton Foundation has spent the last 15 years supporting Vermont children facing the challenges of obesity, substance abuse, poverty, depression.
With the realization that children are the future and the primary influencers of change, the Stratton Mountain Foundation aims to be Vermont’s leading non-profit dedicated to helping Vermont’s youth discover all of life’s possibilities. The Foundation has worked with community organizations to expand opportunities for Vermont’s children to become socially integrated, healthier, smarter and more successful.
Some of the initiatives that the Foundation has supported include:
Refuse to Use– this program supports students from grades 7 through 12 who "Refuse to Use" drugs, alcohol and tobacco. In return for their pledge, the student is rewarded with a Stratton Season Pass.
Junior Instructional Ski Program– The Junior Instructional Ski Program, or JISP, makes it possible for local kids between the ages of 8 and 18 to experience the joys of skiing at a very low cost. In addition to offering complimentary access to the mountain, instruction and instructor training, JISP also serves another important function: outfitting its members with new and used ski and snowboard equipment.
Tubbs Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer– Choose from a 3K or 5K benefit snowshoe walk or a 3k race. Easy, well marked trails along with free snowshoe demos from Tubbs make this a great event for all sorts of ages and abilities—even if you've never snowshoed before!
Since 2003, the Tubbs Romp to Stomp out Breast Cancer has raised nearly three quarters of a million dollars for Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and its Affiliates and inspired thousands of to get out snowshoeing! This year, the event will be help on January 29, 2011.
