The Summit Foundation
Great Rubber Duck Race
“The Summit Foundation is the leading organization inspiring people and mobilizing resources to improve and enrich the lives of individuals in Summit County and our neighboring communities of Alma, Fairplay, Kremmling and Leadville through the allocation of scholarships and grants.
Each year Rockridge helps the Summit Foundation construct their "Great Rubber Duck Race" course. Rockridge volunteers their time and building expertise over Labor Day weekend setting the course, constructing the finish line bridge, encouraging lost ducks through the course, and returning the river back to its natural state so the Summit Foundation can send thousands of ducks down the Blue River in the heart of downtown Breckenridge. The Summit Foundation raises upwards of $100,000 through this event annually.
You can visit their website to learn why The Summit Foundation has earned the nickname “Soul of the Summit”.”
Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC)
“The Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) provides life changing outdoor learning experiences for those who are often excluded from outdoor activity due to a disability or special need. Their headquarters on Wellington Rd has not adequately served many of the organization's needs in years past. After meeting with BOEC leadership, Rockridge Building and Custom Mountain Architects offered pro-bono architectural and construction services to expand and bring their facility up to date. The updated building, completed in the Fall of 2018, provides new office and conference capacities and increases storage for adaptive equipment. Most importantly, the majority of the new third floor is dedicated to housing needs that are vital for the retention of BOEC's staff and volunteers.
Please visit the BOEC's website and learn how to get involved in this inspiring local organization.”
The Cycle Effect
“The Cycle Effect’s mission is empowering young women through mountain biking to create brighter futures and build stronger communities.”
Rockridge has the privilege not only of sponsoring one female athlete each biking season, but also employing Alex Esclamado, who is a member of the board. One of the Cycle Effect’s greatest accomplishments is enabling girls to acquire new strengths through mountain biking and then apply those skills at home and in school. Confidence, goal setting, perseverance and sense of accomplishment are just a handful of the real life skills that the girls learn while training, racing and participating in a team. Rockridge is pleased to be a part of this non-profit program that empowers young women, some of whom go on to be first generation college graduates.
