Cyberschool Hike Day: September 10, 2011

Presented By

Colorado Cyberschools Association

and

Colorado Coalition of Cyberschool Families

On October 2, 1999 Jaryd Atadero went missing in the Colorado Mountains while on a hike. Jaryd was 3-years old. Despite a massive search and rescue effort, Jaryd was never found.

The Jaryd Atadero Story is a poignant story of a parent’s worst nightmare.  Gov. Ritter proclaimed the second week in September as “Recreational Safety Awareness Week” in honor of Jaryd.  Read the letter from Governor Ritter to Faryd’s father, Allyn atadero.

This year Colorado online students will come together on September 10, 2011 as a state wide initiative dedicated to Cyberschool Hike Day in honor of Jaryd. As a fundraiser we will be promoting the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue Cards (CORSAR) and taking a general collection on the day of the hikes.
