Shred for Jake Day slated for Friday

On Friday, the family and friends of organ donor Jake Thompson will gather at Keystone from from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the second annual Shred for Jake Day – a day of snowboarding to honor Thompson who was killed in an accident on March 4, 2009.

Since Thompson’s death, his family has become advocates for organ and tissue donation. One way they spread the word about donation and keep Jake’s memory alive is through the Take Jake Project where folks download a photo of Jake, take him on a journey and then share their experience on the Take Jake Facebook page at /pages/TakeJake/100529966662051.
