August 11, 2019 (Denver, CO) – For multiple consecutive years, AP has contributed to The Hike for Spencer, an event held in memory of Spencer Nelson who died in a climbing accident 9 years ago. On August 10th, AP employees joined the 2019 hike, while the company donated to the event’s cause.
Since the first event eight years ago, the Hike for Spencer has raised over $350,000 for the Winter Park Ski Education Foundation, funding Competition Center Program fees and travel expenditures for youths who otherwise would be unable to participate in the Winter Park Competition Center.
The Hike for Spencer mission ensures that every child with the desire to participate is given the opportunity. The goal is to educate the community about the benefits of investing in younger generations, by helping them become successful individuals through participation in winter sports that emphasize integrity, tenacity, and sportsmanship.
