Come join the students and families of Colorado’s online public schools for our 3rd Annual Cyberschool Hike Day on September 14th. This event will help celebrate recreational safety awareness in Colorado, raise much needed funds for local search and rescue and pay tribute to a special child.
On October 2, 1999, Jaryd Atadero went missing in the Colorado wilderness while on a hike at the age of three. Despite a massive search and rescue effort, Jaryd was never found. As an important reminder of the need for recreational safety, the State of Colorado and Governor Hickenlooper have proclaimed September 9 –15, 2013 as Recreational Safety Awareness Week in Jaryd’s memory. CyberSchool Hike Day will be a great way to honor Jaryd and celebrate this week long event.
Colorado Cyberschool Hike Day
When: Saturday, September 14, 2013
Time: All hikes start at 10 AM
Where: Four different locations around the state (click the link below for info/directions)
Waterton Canyon Trail, Waterton Canyon, Littleton
Lost Lake Trail, Grand Mesa National Forest, Grand Junction

There is no cost to the hike. As a fundraiser project, we will be promoting the Colorado Outdoor Search and Rescue Cards and taking a general collection on the day of the hikes. The COSAR cards and general collection will provide funds for search and rescue teams throughout the state. Jaryd’s father, Allyn Atadero, is a part-time teacher with Insight School of Colorado and will be part of the hike at the Waterton Canyon Trail, and the Arapahoe Rescue Patrol will be joining this hike as well.
Hope to see you there on Saturday, September 14 for a day of celebrating Colorado’s recreational safety awareness, meeting new cyberschool families, connecting with old friends, and enjoying Colorado’s great outdoors.
