Vail Daily letter: Thanks for all the help with Living at Your Peak
September 25, 2012
To bring a vision to life, it takes a team, a team of people who support both the vision and each other.
Living at Your Peak came to life this past weekend as I write. John and I want to thank the people and our sponsors who supported us, believed in our vision for Vail and beyond, and who were with us all the way.
From our hearts, thank you to Adam and Jess, Jay, Barb, Dan and Lisa. To our friends, Jody and Gordon Hoffstein, Karen Johansen, Stan and Mary Ellen Cope, Sally and Kevin Clair, Jean and Larry Peterson, Margaret and Rick Rogers, Kathy Langenwalter and Dick Cleveland, Julie and Kirk Hansen, Deb and Drex Douglass, Laina and Jon Eskin, John and Vicky Garnsey — your support on all levels is appreciated beyond words.
And to our Living at Your Peak Team members (both day to day, and on a broader scale) who have not only been supporters of the vision, key in bringing it to life, but are also true friends: Maureen Brooks, Mary Randall, Jan Biegler, Brad Quayle, Kaylee Brennand, Peter Millett, Coen Wijdicks, Sue Sabido, Jack Eck, Cliff Saron, Uta Pippig, Michael Reger, Vicki Crawford, Steve Virostek, Kathy Langenwalter, Sally Clair, Carol Mullikin, Mark Bricklin, Brad Farans, Jamie Van Leeuwen, Lisa DeKoster, Johannes Faessler, Freddie Rodriguez, Bill Mack, Don Rogers, Jim Hill, Bob Moroney, Beth Slifer, Elaine Kelton, Betty Ann Woodland, David and Kristin Kenny Williams, and Pam and Richard Bard.
