From all of us at the Vail Valley Charitable Fund, we would like to extend a huge thank you to Amy Berger, the Homestead Court Club and all the participants and volunteers that made the first annual Dash in the Dirt relay race a success and a great event! Amy worked tirelessly to make the event happen and donated all the proceeds to the VVCF, where we assist locals in financial need due to medical crisis. We raised more than $2,000, which will help us help more locals. The race was fantastic! Racers in teams of two, switched off running and biking and jumping over obstacles like hay barrels, tires and ponds, and the race ended with a mud pit everyone had to crawl through on their hands and knees. It was a blast to watch and all racers had a good time. Teams were festive, dressing as fairies, bees, dirty tissues and more. It was a fun crowd!The BBQ was a little soggy and had to be moved to the Homestead Court Club. Thanks to all participants for being patient and joining us there for the awards ceremony. We really hope Amy had fun and wants to put the event on again next year, and if she does, I encourage all of you to come out and get a little, I mean a lot, dirty! See you then!Tracy KurtVail Valley Charitable FundGreat jobI would like to express our appreciation to Glenda Wentworth of Colorado State University Cooperative Extension, Flora Montes of Eagle County Head Start Program and Holly Kasper of Eagle County Health and Human Services for organizing a wonderful family night at the Family Learning Center.”Be a Book Cook” was a fun-filled evening for our preschoolers and their parents. It included interaction through “story stretcher” activities, in conjunction with the children’s book “If you Give a Pig a Pancake.” Participants listened to the story, enjoyed delicious pancakes, completed pig puzzles, and experienced many fun activities.It is wonderful to have support from community organizations as we strive to enhance the children’s learning.Sandy BrownDirector,Family Learning Center
