First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who made the inaugural Rob Millisor Heart Health Walk such a tremendous success!
Helping others was the true passion of Rob Millisor, one of the owner/developers of Breckenridge Grand Vacations. In October of 2015, Rob was on a humanitarian trip to the earthquake-stricken area of Langtang, Nepal, when he suffered a heart attack and sadly passed away. Rob was very physically fit, and unaware of any health issues. In honor of Rob, BGV Gives (BGV’s philanthropy program) hosted a family-friendly walk to raise funds in support of heart health programs, education and research on June 11th, 2016.
With the support from Breckenridge Grand Vacations, 100% of every dollar received at the event was contributed to this cause.
We are most grateful to Breckenridge Grand Vacations for making it possible that every single dollar received went into the new Rob Millisor Heart Health Fund at The Summit Foundation. Special thanks to all of our corporate, business and individual sponsors; food sponsors; Breckenridge Grand Vacations employees; community and BGV volunteers; and the media who supported this event so generously and graciously.
It is with heartfelt gratitude that we extend our thanks and appreciation to all who walked in Rob’s honor. More than 1,000 participants made their way along the trails and streets of Breckenridge raising just under $200,000 to date. It was both humbling and inspiring to see so many whose lives have been touched by this kind and gentle man. Thank you for paying tribute and for carrying on Rob’s legacy of supporting and helping others.
The Rob Millisor Heart Health Walk registration site remains open for additional donations. Many, many thanks.
