Silent Auction for Fellow Snowboarder:
Fourteen year old Tyler Eklund broke his C-3 vertebrae while snowboarding at the USA Amateur Snowboarding Association's (USASA) Nationals at Northstar on April 1. Tyler was immediately airlifted to a hospital in Reno, NV where he is currently paralyzed from the neck down.
Tyler was a strong and consistent competitor in High Cascade's long-running USASA snowboard series, "Enter the Dragon," which hosts over one hundred competitors from throughout Oregon.
In March, just weeks prior to his serious injury at Northstar, Tyler's name was drawn for a free summer camp session at High Cascade Snowboard Camp from a pool of competitors who participated in all six Enter the Dragon USASA snowboard contests.
Upon learning of Tyler's serious injury and his family's foreseeable and tremendous medical expenses we announced at USASA Nationals last week that we would put the camp session that Tyler won as well as one other session up for silent auction. We will be silently auctioning off two sessions at High Cascade Snowboard Camp, with all proceeds going to the Tyler Eklund fund at U.S. Bank.
Bids will start at $1500 for each camp session respectively, and will be accepted today through 4 PM (PST) Friday April, 27 via email or phone at email@example.com or 1.800.334.4272.
Please include your name, bid amount, phone number, and email address.
The winning bidders will be announced by High Cascade on Friday April, 27.
