CHAIN SKIMMERS WATER SKI TEAM INC
December 15, 2010

This group of kids literally run a non-profit business with support from their parents and donations from the public for the shows they put on. It's really impressive that they have been able to sustain the organization for 40 years, teaching youngsters to ski and cultivating team values in their ranks. Everytime I've attended a show, it's clear that they put a lot of work into developing young skiers, conducting fund-raising events, maintaining equipment and supporting one another. If we had more organizations like this one, a lot of kids would find focus and purpose much earlier in life. Congratulations to the ongoing efforts and struggle to raise funds to sustain this non-profit.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the impact of the show on the families that attend, seeing the members of the organization grow into capable, responsible and accountable young men and women and come back to see the next generation of team members carry on the legacy of teamwork and providing opportunities for youth.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Tell them to moderately increase their concession stand prices to help with funding; increase overall community awareness of their ski school and their need for financial support.

MY ROLE:
Donor & Contributed money and equipment to the organization.
