There is little doubt that the Vail Valley is an athletic place to live and visit. Just witness the local athlete turnout for the Vail Valley Foundation's recently completed Winter Teva Mountain Games presented by Eddie Bauer or its summer counterpart.

In an effort to directly support community programs the VVF provides in arts, athletics and education, while further satisfying this community's need to challenge itself athletically, the Foundation recently launched its newest philanthropic membership program with the creation of the Vail Valley Foundation Sports Club.

The VVF Sports Club will provide regularly scheduled active and engaging group athletic opportunities throughout the year. Led by internationally renowned adventure racer Mike Kloser and headlined by other world class local athletes, the new club will feature winter and summer group activities, including, but not limited to, ski mountaineering, Nordic skiing, road and mountain biking and trail running. All experiences will feature three basic levels of intensity and duration in order to accommodate athletes of all ages and abilities.

“The Vail Valley Foundation Sports Club allows participants a unique opportunity,” explained Foundation president Ceil Folz. “We are really establishing a new philanthropic vehicle for those people in the community who want to participate actively, directly supporting their community at the same time.”

Membership in the new Vail Valley Foundation Sports Club is an annual contribution of$1,000 for an individual and $1,250 per couple.VVF Sports Club benefits will include the opportunity to participate in 14 winter activities and 12 summer outings.

Additional benefits will include one First Light First Tracks ski and snowboard opportunity, a complimentary entry for one competition at the Teva Mountain Games and a specially-designed Vail Valley Foundation Sports Club cycling jersey.
