Did you know that worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer EVERY three minutes? Sadly, one out of five of these kids diagnosed will not survive. Often, the children who do live will deal with a host of health issues.
St. Baldrick’s Foundation is committed to conquering childhood cancers! The foundation currently funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the Feds.
You can support the St. Baldrick’s Eagle event in one of three ways: make a BALD statement and shave in solidarity, Donate $, or volunteer!
Event features include: a live remote on KSKE Ski Country with morning host, Jeffrey Cash (from 1 – 3 pm), food and drinks, ‘Barbers’ Rodeo’ and Silent Auction.
New this year is the ‘Haircut Hall of Fame’ and a live auction for a “Date with Nate” and other local firemen.
The post event party happens immediately after the shave-a-thon at the Dusty Boot in Eagle Ranch. 20% of food and drink proceeds will be donated to St. Baldrick’s!
Join us the 3rd Tuesday of each month in Eagle as we raise awareness about environmental issues afflicting our world through featured films. This month our featured film is ‘Elemental’.
Elemental tells the story of three individuals united by their deep connection with nature and driven to confront some of the most pressing ecological challenges of our time.
The film follows Rajendra Singh, an Indian government official gone rogue, on a 40-day pilgrimage down India’s once pristine Ganges river, now polluted and dying. Facing community opposition and personal doubts, Singh works to shut down factories, halt construction of dams, and rouse the Indian public to treat their sacred “Mother Ganga” with respect. Across the globe in northern Canada, Eriel Deranger mounts her own “David and Goliath” struggle against the world’s largest industrial development, the Tar Sands, an oil deposit larger than the state of Florida. A young mother and native Denè, Deranger struggles with family challenges while campaigning tirelessly against the Tar Sands and its proposed 2,000-mile Keystone XL Pipeline, which are destroying Indigenous communities and threatening an entire continent.
And in Australia, inventor and entrepreneur Jay Harman searches for investors willing to risk millions on his conviction that nature’s own systems hold the key to our world’s ecological problems. Harman finds his inspiration in the natural world’s profound architecture and creates a revolutionary device that he believes can slow down global warming, but will it work?
Separated by continents yet sharing an unwavering commitment to protecting nature, the characters in this story are complex, flawed, postmodern heroes for whom stemming the tide of environmental destruction fades in and out of view – part mirage, part miracle.

A Strategic Action Plan for Colorado’s Health and Wellness Industry
Michele Lueck, President and CEO of the Colorado Health Institute. There will also be a regional industry panel following Michele’s presentation including: Augustana Care, The Vail Vitality Center, Health Links Colorado and Rhonda Koehn, CEO, High Country Healthcare, PC.
Please RSVP today to [email protected].
In December 2013, the Colorado Health Institute, in partnership with the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), unveiled a statewide strategic plan to create jobs and economic growth in the health and wellness industry.
The report, titled “Healthy Economy, Healthy Colorado: A Strategic Action Plan for Colorado’s Health and Wellness Industry,” reveals that the industry accounts for $40 billion-plus in annual economic activity, makes up 15.3 percent of the gross state product and employs more than 360,000 workers. The sector is poised for growth, but local health and wellness businesses must be proactive and strategic in achieving success.
Healthcare and wellness businesses are major drivers of our regional economy and this strategic plan provides a roadmap to assist industry partners in strongly positioning themselves for the future.
Please join us for this important conversation about a sector that will drive an increasing proportion of our regional economy in the years to come.
Registration is free to NWCCOG, VVP Health and Wellness Initiative and Healthy Communities Coalition partners. $10 for VVP members $25 for all others.
