Lindsey Vonn auctioning off gear to aid foundation
Get your own Vonn speed suit
If you’ve always wanted something from Lindsey Vonn’s ski-racing career, this may be your chance.
The four time World Cup champion announced on Instagram that she will be putting up a lot of the gear from her racing career to benefit her eponymous foundation.
“I never thought honestly I would part ways with any of these things because I have such great memories with them and I’ve collected them for a reason,” Vonn said in an Instagram post on Thursday. “I never wanted to give them away. To support my foundation and all the kids who really need the money for their educational programs and their scholarships, this is much more valuable to me.”
The Lindsey Vonn Foundation is a nonprofit with proceeds going toward helping empower the next generation. The foundation raises money to give nationally to kids who need scholarships for STEM, sports and enrichment activities.
First up are some speed suits, including a custom design that she has autographed. Also up for bids are a Red Bull helmet, a signature piece of the Vonn look on the course, and a 2018 U.S. Ski Team jacket.
