Martinez Miles for Lake County Youth
Gabe Martinez, a former resident of Leadville with deep ties to Lake County, is attempting to become a “Leadman” this summer by competing/qualifying in multiple legs of the Leadville Race Series. The series will culminate in August for two 100 mile races — the Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike race and the Leadville Trail 100 Run. While competing, Gabe wants to raise funds for Full Circle to help supplement their ability to offer unconditional programming & healthy afterschool snacks for attendees.
“Growing up, some of the most memorable — and formative — experiences of my life can be tied back to exploring the areas surrounding Leadville. In a community where both parents typically commute to Vail, Frisco, and beyond for work, Full Circle programs serve a vital role in creating a safe environment for the youth to learn, to explore, and to grow.
People tend to take on ultra-endurance events to uncover something internally. Every year, people from around the world descend upon Leadville to test themselves and to experience something that will catalyze personal development. A donation to Full Circle will help to ensure that the youth of the community get an opportunity to pursue their own growth in their back yard.”
