Community support sought to help recovery of injured skier
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY — To show support and love for Sally Francklyn, a long-standing member of Copper Mountain’s ski patrol team who was injured in a ski accident two weeks ago, Copper has renamed the ‘Super Hero’ heat at the upcoming CopperMan adventure race April 14, 2012, to the ‘Super Hero Sally’ heat.
Super Woman Sally Supporters will have the option of purchasing a $49 entry for this heat, and 50 percent of proceeds will benefit Sally’s recovery. Super Hero Capes will be sold during the event for $10, with 100 percent of proceeds donated to Sally.
During the race, there will be an obstacle called ‘Leap of Faith.’ Followers of Sally’s recovery will be able to view images online at CopperColorado.com as race participants show their support by entertaining her with their best super hero leaps! To register for CopperMan, please visit CopperColorado.com/CopperMan and use code ‘Sunshine’ when ordering.
Sally Francklyn joined Copper Mountain Ski Patrol 10 years ago as a junior patroller and has remained an active member of the patrol team through the 2011/2012 season.
On March 24, she was injured while skiing with friends in the backcountry near Jackson Hole. More details can be found on Sally’s Facebook page, currently being updated by her brother Chris Francklyn. Online donations can also be made directly to Sally’s Super fund.
