Last Friday a group of Hyder employees—Matt HuelskampLori HelderleinJacob WaltersMatt JohnsRobbie MillerScott MillerPreston BoydBrian Archibald, and Ben Johns—participated the 25th Annual Jane-A-Thon, a two day skiing event at Mary Jane / Winter Park that benefits the non-profit Invest in Kids.

Invest in Kids raised $358,400 at this year’s Jane-A-Thon. The Hyder team was responsible for $16,120 of that total. Lori won the award (a new pair of skis) for most individual donations and Hyder won the award for most funds raised by a “medium” sized team (less than 25 participants).

This year, we had twice as many Hyder folks complete the bump challenge – completing all 16 bump runs at Mary Jane (nearly 25,000 vertical feet): Preston, Robbie, Matt H, Matt J, Ben, Brian, Scott, and Jacob.

Invest in Kids (IIK) is a local nonprofit organization working to ensure every Colorado child has a strong start in life. IIK works tirelessly to adopt, implement, and scale proven programs that have the greatest long-term impact on young children and families experiencing poverty, working to improve the health and well-being of 14,000 children and families each year.
