Please be on the lookout from Mike with some photos from the Jack and Jill Foundation trip to Steamboat. But first of all we would like to humbly thank you and Jon Albert for the most unforgettable family trip to Steamboat, Co. It was truly more than we could ever have dreamed of. Our children saw “Real” snow for the first time in their lives. Combined with the kind ski lesson and great equipment you provided them they were already skiing intermediate runs by their 2nd day.
Alpine Shuttle service was prompt and we felt very safe considering the icy road conditions. They stopped for restroom/snack breaks and gave good information on Steamboat ( a little history on the way).
The Sheraton Resort could not have been nicer. A ski in-ski out situation for us was just perfect since I needed to rest every day. The service at the hotel was impeccable and the food at every meal was incredible.
Also, the kids were in heaven on the Red Runner Dog Sled Adventure. They took us out on a frozen lake, taught the kids how to harness the dogs and best of all they each got to steer the sleds. And being big dog fans and having our own Siberian Husky, it was the icing on the cake to the trip:-)
We hope we can personally thank everyone involved in this once in a lifetime event that we will never forget. And after everything our two children have been through these years with Fran’s illness it was like Heaven seeing them with the biggest smiles on their faces. We will look at the pictures and be reminded of how blessed we were to be chosen and treated by your organization.
We hope one day to be able to help you raise money for this more than worthwhile foundation you have created.
