Hiking for a Good Cause

Saturday we participated in the Tyler Broberg Rollercoaster Hike and it was a great experience. For those who did not know Tyler, he was a wonderful teenager in our Stake whose life came to an end in an accident last year. He was such a good kid and was admired by many. They came up with a foundation in his name, to honor his good life, and have raised over $100.000 for the Habitat for Humanity organization. Wow! It is truly a tribute to the wonderful young man he was and also for such a great family that he has. They had a fundraiser hike on Saturday and I believe that over 200 people were there. It was a beautiful day and the hiking trail was awesome! It ended up being such a great tribute to a young man who led an exceptional life and touched many peoples lives in such a short time on this earth. Truly an amazing experience!

what a good way to remember someone. How sad that he died so young.

Tyler's cousin, Tyler Frogley, is in our ward and our seminary class. If Tyler B.'s influence on his cousin is an indication of the kind of kid he was, I'm so glad they are continuing his legacy with the foundation.

That was a great hike and our kids had so much fun.

How great that you all participated! Tyler and his family have been long friends of our family. In fact Ben's twin sisters used to babysit Tyler. We were all upset to hear about his accident! But it is amazing to see what has blossomed out of this tragedy.
