The Broken Arrow Skyrace prides itself on giving back to the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee community. Each year, we designate a portion of our proceeds to hand-picked groups making a real difference in the fabric our our community.
Past recipients include:
This annual scholarship was created to honor the spirit of Julia Millon, a beloved local runner who was dedicated and passionate about all of the activities that encompassed her existence, especially life outdoors, ultra trail running, reading, writing, science, health and well-being. Julia graduated from Winters High School in 2008 and the University of Berkeley in 2012. Her family hopes that scholarship recipients will share Julia’s dedication, resolve and selflessness. The Broken Arrow Skyrace made the decision to re-name the traditional High Camp aid station the Julia Millon Memorial Aid Station (JMMAS), where each year our team and Julia's close friends remember her bright, unforgettable light.
Donner Party Mountain Runners is a grassroots 501(c)(3) non-profit running club based in Truckee, California, with members from all around the region, the U.S., and the world. The Truckee-Tahoe region has long been home to many avid trail runners, and a destination for many others to explore and enjoy world-class trails and scenery. DPMR was founded in 2014 to share the passion for all things trail running. Their name honors the early emigrants to California, especially those in the ill-fated Donner Party, who faced the mountains under incredibly difficult circumstances. They were, like modern trail runners, UNAFRAID.
Based in the Truckee-North Lake Tahoe area, Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue (TNSAR) is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that works closely with local sheriff’s departments and other agencies to conduct emergency search and rescue operations each year to those lost or hurt in the wilderness of the rugged Sierra Nevada range. The organization also works to promote winter and backcountry safety for all ages throughout the Tahoe community, including a program for local fourth grade students called Winter Aware. Their organization’s mission remains the same as it did on day one: conduct fast and safe rescues and educate the public on winter safety.
The Devo Team is a TCCSEA program for athletes (age 11-14) interested in improving their cross-country ski technique and committed to becoming competition-ready. The Devo Team is the next step in Tahoe XC's youth development pipeline and is ideal for those who have graduated from Strider Gliders, or similar program, and are dedicated to cross-country skiing. At every practice, Devo coaches strive to help athletes meet their personal, physical, and mental goals in a small team setting.
The mission of the BGCNLT is to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who need the most help, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
