Homeowners raise $7,600 for BOEC


BRECKENRIDGE – About 50 homeowners in The Highlands in Breckenridge helped raise $7,600 through a letter-writing campaign this summer to benefit the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center.

The BOEC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing outdoor adventure, team and leadership development and adaptive ski programs for people of all abilities.

Both primary and second homeowners were asked to support the nonprofit organization through contributions the company would match. The funds will support the Accessible Recreation and Adaptive Equipment Campaign and go toward the purchase of a four-wheel-drive truck. The campaign has already provided money for hand-cycles, wheelchairs, sea kayaks, ski equipment and scholarships.

Homeowners raised $2,300 in the letter-writing campaign and another $1,500 at a reception last month. The Highlands then matched the funds. The organization still needs $10,000 to reach its goal.

The Highlands officials also have pledged $7,000 over the next two years to replace old uniforms.
