Aspen, CO, Dec. 23, 1999--World class athletes racing down the same run without pause for 24 hours demands a solid snow base. In early December, just days before the grueling 24 Hours of Aspen race for charity, officials examined the course and deemed it unsafe due to a lack of snow. Undaunted, the 2.4 Hours of Aspen race on Dec. 11, and other fundraising events prevailed.

Bombing down Aspen's Little Nell slope, 53 children ages 6-14, with a minimum of $25 in pledges, raced to support the Kids Stuff Foundation and the Aspen Valley Ski/Snowboard Club. At the end of 2.4 hours of racing the children raised $4,937 which was matched by Elk Mountain Motors/Audi bringing the total amount raised to $9,874.

Later that evening, the 12th Annual Gulfstream 24 Hours of Aspen gala dinner and auction raised over $600,000 for the Silver Lining Foundation and the Aspen Valley Ski/Snowboard Club.

The Silver Lining Foundation gives children with life threatening medical conditions a visit to Aspen for a week of fun. On a local front the Aspen Valley Ski/Snowboard Club provides financial aid to children in the Roaring Fork Valley so they can participate in winter sports.
