Brian Russell Memorial Scholarship | Brian Russell Foundation

The Brian Russell Memorial Fund was founded in May of 2000 after the tragic passing of Brian Russell at age 16. Brian competed for and represented the Alyeska Ski Club at local and national alpine events. Brian was an outstanding athlete, an avid skier and alpine ski racer, and an excellent student. In his memory, the Alyeska Ski Club and Glacier Valley Ski Education Foundation established a scholarship fund in his name.  Years passed and The Fund has grown to its current level, thanks to continued support from the local community, and the Brian Russell Foundation was formed.

The mission of the Brian Russell Foundation is to promote and inspire the love of junior ski racing and provide financial support to developing junior ski racers. The Fund is structured so that athletes age 14 to 18 are encouraged to be active in year-round training and racing, maintain 3.0 GPA’s or better, be positive role models and remain drug and alcohol free.

Girdwood 2020 Go for the Gold

Girdwood 2020 recognizes one of the factors in creating a world class resort is the quality of athletes that are produced here. With this in mind, Girdwood 2020 created the Go for the Gold Fund in an effort to assist budding Olympic athletes with the high costs of competing at that level.
