THE STORY:

Cameron James Howe, age 20 of Westport CT, beloved son of Jim and Patti Howe and loving brother of Caroline Howe passed away September 6, 2012. Cameron lived more in his 20 years than most live in a  lifetime. He had a zest for life and dedication to follow his dreams. This led Cameron to attend high school at Stratton Mountain School in Vermont, where he graduated with honors while competing as a nationally ranked snowboarder. For college he chose to go west, attending the University of California Santa Barbara which allowed him to continue to snowboard while also pursuing another favorite activity, surfing . 

As many of you know, I love the water in all its forms, so I feel a particularly kindred spirit with Cam and his love of both the mountains and snow and the ocean and surf.  This spring -  April 28th – May 3 - I will be going to northern Iceland for a 6 day back country ski touring trip and while this is certainly going to be fun,  there is a something more meaningful and important that is linked to this trip.  As an homage to a very special young man and the efforts of his family to ensure a lasting and positive legacy in his name, I am raising money through this trip for STOKED, the organization the Howe family has chosen to support in Cam's name.  

As we will summit a different peak each day of the trip, I am calling this, 'Six Summits for Cam'.  If you wish to participate, you can pledge / donate based on each summit reached (forcing me up the mountain each day – I will post picture evidence) or just give an amount you are comfortable with in Cam's name.  

STOKED have launched the Cameron Howe 'Live a Big Life Fund' that will allow friends and family to donate in tribute to Cameron. STOKED's mission is to promote personal development, academic achievement, and healthy living through action sports like snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding. STOKED is a 501c3 non profit that works with low income youth in both New York and Los Angeles.  As an added incentive, the Lefler family will match all donations received in conjunction with 'Six Summits for Cam' up to $5000.
