Sarah Burke Foundation | To provide inspiration and support to those in need
Sarah Burke was so much more than just a successful athlete; She was a leader in the sport community, a respected media personality, and an action sports icon. She was also an activist and a philanthropist, who devoted much of her life to helping others.
Whether it was running marathons to raise money for St.Judes Children’s Hospital, traveling to work with the Women’s Sport Foundation, or coaching young skiers on the glaciers in the summertime, Sarah’s spirit of generosity, and desire to help those in need, was a defining aspect of her life.
The Sarah Burke Foundation is committed to the altruistic ideals embodied by Sarah’s life and her actions. The foundation will preserve Sarah’s goodwill and her actions, by supporting and inspiring current and future generations. All support will allow us to carry on Sarah’s spirit and legacy by supporting others in sport and future generations.
