In Kelly’s Words – Reflecting on a Year of Change

Posted on December 20, 2021 to Blog

If 2020 was a year to forget, 2021 was a year to remember for the Kelly Brush Foundation! When reflecting on the year that just was, I am struck by how much has changed since one year ago. I would venture to say that this year has had more changes than ever before since our […]

In Kelly’s Words – The Active Fund Empowers Community

When I had my spinal cord injury in 2006, I knew right away that I wanted to get back on the mountain and ski again. Not because I wanted to race (I was injured while ski racing), and not even because I loved to ski (which, of course, I did and still do), but the […]
