The Vail Valley Charitable Fund (VVCF) was created in 1996 to provide assistance to individuals who live and work in the Vail Valley who are experiencing a financial hardship due to a medical crisis or long-term illness. The VVCF has grown significantly over the past 20 years, having raised and distributed $7 million to approximately 1,400 families in our community. The majority of our donations come from individuals and businesses right here in our Valley. With your help, we provide almost 70 individuals and families each year with assistance to help them make ends meet while undergoing treatment or recovery from a range of medical conditions.

BecTri Sprint Triathlon, 5K and Kid's Tri Avon, CO - www.bectri.com
Saturday, August 6th, 2016
The 9th Annual BecTri includes 3 events in one, providing opportunity for athletes at all levels. Triathletes can challenge themselves in the popular high altitude, open water triathlon that you know and love. Teams of 2 or 3 can compete in the triathlon with team members choosing their event strengths. Bring the family to run or walk in the 5K or sign up the kids for the Kid's Duathlon. The triathlon and 5K start at 8:00am with the 5K following paved paths for the walk/run while the triathletes jump in the lake for the swim. The 5K participants are then welcome to cheer while others continue to race or they can check out the silent auction. Triathletes will then ride a 15K bike leg and finish with a 5K run or walk to the finish while your friends and family cheer. The BecTri is named in honor of Rebecca Lynn Yarberry, a local triathlete and friend. She passed in a tragic car accident in the Vail Valley in 2007.
