If you’re a fan of college basketball and you’ve started watching the NCAA “March Madness” tournament on CBS sports you may have caught the snippet at the bottom of the screen showing a familiar looking monoskier.
Yes, that is Kelly!
CBS, the NCAA, and Buick showcase six former NCAA athletes who have created charitable foundations and measurable change as a result during the NCAA Basketball Tournament, March Madness. As you can guess, our very own Kelly Brush Davisson, has been chosen as one of those featured in the 2013 “Buick Human Highlight Reel”. This half hour program will air on national television (CBS) on Saturday, April 6th at 3:30 pm during the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Semifinals games. Kelly and the Kelly Brush Foundation will have a five minute spot within the 30 minute televised show, highlighting her story and everything the Foundation has been able to accomplish over its short history.
CBS sent a three person film crew up to Vermont in late February for a full day of video footage at Sugarbush. The film crew was also able to get footage of Kelly monoskiing down Inverness, the race trail she trained on as a student at Green Mountain Valley School, and which has been renamed the Kelly Brush Race Arena. Kelly will be in great company in this televised show, alongside five professional athletes. Plan to tune in to your local CBS affiliate on the afternoon of April 6th to watch and see the Foundation you support get some much deserved national praise. We will be sure to email you and post reminders on facebook between now and then!
