“Ski racing has been a huge part of my life and without the support from my family and NYSEF, I would not be able to race at the level I am today. I am part of an amazing team while maintaining my academics and being taught by the best coaches who have improved my skiing and helped me perform at a high level. Through the Dare To Dream Scholarship, I have been able to attend camps at Copper and Mount Hood, which is something I would never be able to do without the support that has been provided to me. I am grateful for the generosity of donors today and always.”

NYSEF is raising funds for the Dare To Dream Scholarship in the month of December. We are $2,500 away from our $25,000 goal. We appreciate your commitment in making sure our programs have all the resources in place to excel. Before we close 2021, please consider making a contribution before this year ends.


Your support today has a direct impact on athletes like Kirsten this season. 

A special thanks to everyone who has already supported the Dare To Dream Scholarship by making a donation and attending the outdoor Chairman’s Party on December 28.
