Editor's Note: Sally Francklyn is a former online editor for both Ski and Skiing Magazine
Press Release from Copper Mountain
With participants braving the snow-themed obstacles in last weekend's CopperMan adventure race, the inaugural end-of-season event was an outstanding success! The most noteworthy achievement of closing weekend was the support and love extended to Sally Francklyn, a long-standing member of Copper Mountain's Ski Patrol team who was injured in a ski accident in late March. Over $2800 was raised by CopperMan participants, the National Ski Patrol and Copper Mountain Resort.
Copper Mountain would like to extend a sincere thanks to everyone who participated in the "Super Hero Sally" heat, and to the National Ski Patrol who raised $718 at their annual banquet over the weekend. Many of these NSP members did not know Sally personally, yet her story has touched their hearts. The balance came from CopperMan cape sales and the total was matched by Copper Mountain Resort. "It is humbling to see the community come together in support of a long standing super star" states Pete Woods, Copper Mountain Marketing Director.
