I was the recipient of a Flyin Ryan Scholarship that allowed me to take my AIARE 2 avalanche education course. This was critical to my success on a year long backcountry skiing project. The whole organization is amazing and even after the scholarship continues to support my outdoors endeavors. Can't speak highly enough of everyone involved.

Flyin Ryan has made such a positive impact on my life and who I am today. The Hawks Foundation turned one of my biggest dreams into a reality. My experience as a ski racer with MRSC enabled me to grow as a friend, daughter, sister and athlete. I´m so thankful for everything you have done for me. Thank you!

The Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation brings me such joy knowing they dedicate their work to finding individuals that have a burning spirit of Adventure and compassion. They have awarded me in order for me to pursue my adventurous goals and to continue my education. Before I was even finished with my application, I had recommended the foundation to 3 of my other friends. I will continue to tag them in my adventures!

Flyin Ryan helped me be able to take an Avy 2 class last winter and they couldn't have been more helpful! After having a ton of friends get scholarships through them to pursue their outdoor pursuits, I applied as well and I'm so glad I did. They're the freaking best, and I could not have gotten the certification without them!

The Flyin' Ryan Foundation was fantastic to work with. They helped send me to British Columbia to make a short film about a family that operates a backcountry guiding service in the Purcell Mountains. I got to meet amazing people along the way and ski some incredible snow. I couldn't have afforded to undertake this project without the help of the Adventure Scholar Grant. They made it easy to apply and were genuinely excited to help me fulfill reach my goal. They've stayed in touch with me since I got back and it's great to still be part of such a close community.

Support from Flyin Ryan Hawks foundation has given athletes such as me a chance to follow their dream. What inspired me to apply for a Fyin Ryan scholarship was all the stories from the people who have benefitted from a scholarship by the Flyin Ryan Foundation. You have in fact spread joy to me and every athlete you have helped fallow their dreams. I used my scholarship to help pay for the diamond dog's program at Sugarbush Mount Ellen. There, I learned park skiing - throwing big air and learning tricks that I have always wanted to do.

This winter, I am attending at Green Mountain Vally School In Fayston Vermont to fallow my dream of being a ski racer.
Thank you for your support! You have helped inspire me to dream big.

The Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation is doing awesome things for all the right reasons.

These are interesting times we are living in. Children are bombarded daily with information and distractions. The Core Values and Decisions Programs are a great tool to provide today's youth with a rock solid foundation. A foundation that will assist in navigating life's obstacles.
