Help spread the word
Dear Friends and Family,
We all feel the tremendous impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on our world. All of us are making sacrifices and have had to give up many of our usual activities and the things we love doing. As a ski racer for Team Alpental Snoqualmie my racing season was cut short mid-March eliminating some of my favorite events, camaraderie with some of my best friends and the chance to do something that I love so much - ski!
To support programs in the Northwest benefitting COVID-19 relief efforts* and to help my ski team replace needed revenue caused by cancelling races & events, we are doing a fund-raising project.
The project is called the "Bunker-Olympics". We are each making a video of us doing some kind of physical/athletic/cooky activity. It will be fun to share these with each other to help us stay in touch and connected. I greatly appreciate your support with a donation using this fundraising page.
About this fundraiser:
To help support programs in the Northwest benefitting COVID-19* relief efforts and to help Team Alpental Snoqualmie (TAS) replace needed revenue caused by cancelling races and other events, we are doing a fund-raising project.
The project is called the "Bunker-Olympics". Each athlete will be making one or more videos showing them performing some kind of physical, athletic and/or cooky activity. They'll be able to share these with each other to help replace some of the camaraderie and community they've lost this season. We greatly appreciate your support.

A little more about TAS:
Team Alpental-Snoqualmie (TAS) is a premier alpine ski racing program in the Pacific Northwest based at the Summit at Snoqualmie. TAS offers the highest level of physical conditioning, race training and professional USSA/PSIA certified staff to help aspiring athletes achieve their alpine racing goals. TAS provides opportunities for athletes to develop racing skills alongside life skills, both of which are fundamental to the growth of a well-rounded, maturing athlete.
In 1971, a group of interested parents and racers established the Alpental Ski Foundation and the Alpental Ski Club. The Foundation was established as a non-profit organization to promote junior ski racing. The Alpental-Snoqualmie Ski Foundation is a non-profit (501c3), educational ski racing organization dedicated to developing ski racers. The Foundation is funded only by tuition, fundraisers, donations, and the dedication and hard work of its members, parents and supporters.
TAS has provides an outstanding level of coaching, skiing and training resulting in exceptional success from our athletes, including recent National Junior Champions Vanessa Berther and Anna Mounsey, and an Olympic Gold Medal at Sarajevo in 1984 by Debbie Armstrong, after whom the Armstrong Express chairlift at Alpental is named.
Your donations will help pay for:

Happy Skiing from Pop & Grandma Jacobson
