Cooper Campbell Day
Leave a mark!
WinterKids' Cooper Campbell Day was an event to celebrate the life of Maine teen, Cooper Campbell, who was killed by a drunk driver on the Maine Turnpike in April of 2008. Steve Campbell, Cooper's father, says fifteen-year-old Cooper was an avid skier and snowboarder who "enjoyed winter with his whole heart and lived by the words ‘live, learn, listen, leap, laugh, love, and leave a mark.'"
For 5 years, WinterKids and Shawnee Peak helped "leave a mark" for Cooper by bringing kids and families out on the slopes to learn and have fun together. Each year, from 2009 to 2013, 100 kids got a chance to try skiing and snowboarding for the very first time, with free lessons, rentals, and lift tickets donated by Shawnee Peak!
