Vail Daily letter: Great gift from climbers
Vail, CO, Colorado
Vail Pet Partners would like to extend its deepest thanks to the donors, participants and organizers of the Climb for Literacy.
Ellen Miller, founder of the event and local mountaineer, has found a way for children to channel their passion for climbing into a event that promotes literacy while benefiting those less fortunate or reading challenged.
The Vail Climbing Team – coached by Larry Moore, Adam Markert and Justin Miller – delivered a stellar performance and raised thousands of dollars for this worthwhile cause.
Vail Pet Partners and their tail-wagging companions are a welcome presence in local classrooms where they assist reading challenged students. Pet Partners also visit patients at the Vail Valley Medical Center and brighten the lives of part-time residents at Jack’s Place.
