The Vail Valley Charitable Fund (VVCF) was created in 1996 to provide assistance to individuals who live and work in Eagle County who are experiencing a financial hardship due to a medical crisis or long-term illness. The VVCF has grown significantly over the past 19 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 100 individuals and families each year with assistance to help them make ends meet while undergoing treatment or recovery from a range of medical conditions.

Friday, August 28th
Kailyn Forsberg entered this world just over 15 years ago with a drive to perform and a passion to compete. On April 7, 2015 Kailyn Forsberg dared greatly. She was exercising her competitive spirit in pursuit of a USASA National Freeskiing Championship at Copper Mountain. After placing 2nd nationally in two disciplines in the preceding days, on April 7th Kailyn unfortunately experienced a traumatic crash on the slopestyle course. The injuries were significant, including a broken pelvis, dislocated hip, and most concerning a fracture of her C-7 vertebrae impacting the spinal cord. Kailyn was immediately air lifted to Children's Hospital in Aurora, Colorado. She underwent extensive surgery. Kailyn currently has no motor movement and minimal feeling from the chest down.
