Joined by hundreds of likeminded people from all over the country, K2 Snowboarding set sail from Seattle to Kalispell, Montana to pay our respects to a fallen brother. This last summer Aaron “A-Rob” Robinson passed away while smashing life down in the mountains of Chile.
Before he passed, one of Aaron’s dreams was to create a non-profit organization dedicated to helping underprivileged kids share his passion for snowboarding. Today, the A-Rob Plant A Seed Foundation is official and anticipated to start changing lives of Montana’s youth this winter season. As an effort to support Aaron’s foundation and thus improve the lives of kids nationwide, K2 Snowboarding built three custom Turbo Dream snowboards (A-Rob’s favorite) for a silent auction during last weekend’s carnival. Prior to arrival one of the boards was sold for $2,000 to a long time friend of A-Rob. In total, the three boards accumulated over $4,000 with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the foundation.
A special thank you to the entire Robinson family for making last weekend an experience that will never be forgotten. We love you so much, Aaron and will surely be getting barreled all season in your name. Say hi to Craig Kelly for us!
