Date:11/24/2008

BURLINGTON, Vt., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Just as ski resorts are opening for the season, the Kelly Brush Foundation kicked off its 2008/2009 Ski Racing Safety is No Accident Campaign with the announcement of over $20,000 in grants to ski racing clubs and programs across the country. The grants are part of a campaign to promote and improve ski racing safety.

Among the recipients are some of the most prestigious racing programs in the nation including the Mount Mansfield Ski Club at Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont and the Aspen Valley Ski Club at Aspen in Colorado. Each club won a $10,000 grant earmarked for enhancing safety on the trails where their young racers train and race.

"The Kelly Brush Foundation is working to raise the bar when it comes to safety in ski training and racing. We really want safety to be foremost in everybody's mind anytime a ski racer is racing or training on the hill," said Charlie Brush, a founder of the Kelly Brush Foundation. "The goal of the Ski Racing Safety is No Accident Campaign is to facilitate safety enhancements and promote awareness in the ski racing community including officials, coaches, athletes and parents."

Brush founded the nonprofit along with his family and friends after his daughter Kelly Brush was paralyzed in a ski racing accident in 2006. Ever since, the foundation has been working to improve ski racing safety as well as providing adaptive sports equipment to those living with spinal cord injury and supporting the U.S. Disabled Ski Team.

Igor Vanovac, Director of Mount Mansfield Ski Club, said the grant will be used to purchase state-of-the-art safety fencing to line a new race course at Stowe Mountain Resort.
