Stampede City Ski Club - The Fun Place To Ski!

Ski Hard, Live Big, With The SCSC

Thank You
For your Donation to the
Vince & Adele Ohama  Fundraiser

Serene Gradient

Hello Kind Donors,

Thank you very much for your very kind generosity in providing your donation, towards SCSC's recent Silent Auction on April 25th. The Stampede City Ski Club chose to support Vince and Adele, both keen supporters of the Ski Club for the past many years, as they wanted to express their sincere gratitude to the volunteer Search & Rescue organization who assisted Vince & Adele when Vince suffered a severe head trauma while on vacation. Vince remained in hospital for almost a month before he was well enough to be medevaced home, and the aid this volunteer organization provided during this time, well beyond what was expected, was invaluable to them both.

Vince has been making incredible progress in his recovery but still has a long way to go. However, he would not be here today without the volunteer Search & Rescue team's quick thinking and action, and the continued kindness they provided during Vince and Adele's stay.

 

Once again, it is donor's like yourselves who generously gave to this cause that SCSC, on behalf of Vince and Adele, want to personally thank you for stepping up and helping us raise over $2800.00 at the Silent Auction that evening. Thanks again for your personal contribution to support these volunteers.

On behalf of Vince and Adele, and the Stampede City Ski Club Executive, along with myself, we are most grateful for your support.

Hey, I'm Andrea.

 

I'm the Stampede City Ski Club President. We are fundraising for a long-time member - Vince Ohama. Almost anyone who has been a Club member over the past 8 years or so, knows Vince. Vince is the life of the party, but, he is also always the first one up the next morning ready to ski and guide those who follow, down the hill safely.

 

This past February Vince was off for another ski trip of a lifetime in Eastern Europe. He had been skiing in North Macedonia and was heading to his next destination. While making his way there he stopped near the town of Peja, City of Tourism, in Kosovo. It is here while rock climbing on February 21st, although fully decked out in all the required safety equipment, Vince suffered a severe head trauma on a Via Ferrata "Mati" route in Kosovo. Vince remained in the nearby Prishtina, Kosovo hospital, with Adele at his side caring for him, until late March when he was well enough to be medevaced by Air Ambulance back to the Red Deer Hospital. Vince now continues his recovery at Foothills Hospital in Calgary. Our thoughts, prayers, and well wishes go out to Vince and Adele during this very difficult time and we wish him a speedy recovery.

 

The Kosovo Mountain Search and Rescue Service, ShKShMK, was instrumental in Vince's rescue and quickly responded to and safely transported Vince to a nearby hospital. One member of that team in particular, Ilir Zhegrova, was exceptional in his kindness by providing additional support and translation services to Adele while she tended to Vince in hospital, and beyond. At Adele's and Vince's request, we will be collecting donations to support the Kosovo Mountain Search and Rescue Service as well as a thank you donation directly to Ilir at the Spring Social.

 

Please provide your financial support to this incredibly worthy organization that rescued our SCSC member Vince Ohama. Vince may not be here today without their incredible bravery and quickness to provide medical aid. As you know, Vince is a fighter, and evidently miracles do happen, as he has defied all the odds to be here with us today. Once again, do support this cause on behalf of Vince and Adele and in support of those who volunteer their time to help others in need.

 

With great gratitude,

Stampede City Ski Club (SCSC)

 

 

p.s. Please note @98% of the money raised for this "GoFundMe" fundraiser will be collected by SCSC, and the fund distribution will be determined by Vince and Adele once it comes to a close in @ 30 days. The remaining 2 % will be absorbed in handling and administrative fees. The Club will not directly benefit financially.
