CrossFit of Breckenridge/ Breck Freeride ‘Mentoring Through Fitness,’ benefits the SOS

Daily News staff report

On Dec. 13, in keeping with the season, CrossFit of Breckenridge and the Breckenridge Freeride Team, partnered to host their second annual “Mentoring Through Fitness,” in which coaches and team members came together for an evening of fitness education and goods donation benefitting the Snowboard Outreach Society.

Kids from Summit County’s SOS University Program joined up with members of the Breck Freeride Team and CrossFit of Breckenridge to learn about general fitness and wellness, as well as learning a few things about a day in the life of the pro riders. The kids comprised of three- and four-year veterans of the SOS program including a handful of junior mentors who have advanced into leadership roles with SOS. Team riders, including Jake and Zack Black, Ryan Thompson, Kerri Hermann, Leslie Glenn, Seth Hill, Nate Kern and Anna Segal, all of whom took a break from the week’s Dew Tour responsibilities, shared their experiences and then went 1-on-1 with SOS through a 15-minute workout.

CrossFit of Breckenridge would like to thank Vail Resorts, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Breckenridge Freeride Team, Smith Optics and Volcom for their generous donations which ranged from lift tickets to new snowboards, shoes, boots, helmets, goggles, gloves, etc.
