Aid includes a Saint Bernard puppy (Watson).
The inaugural Colorado Avalanche 5K was quite a success as we followed up the run/walk/skate with a very emotional check presentation to Bretlyn Schmidtmann. Bretlyn and her husband (Charlie) lost their home in the Nederland wild fires this summer. We were able to aid them with a check for $10,000!!! We weren’t finished though. In addition to the check , we also were able to present them with a Saint Bernard puppy (Watson) to help replace the hole in their heart that was suffered when they lost their Saint Bernard (Geno) in that same wild fire.
The Schmidtmann’s plan to “pay it forward” by training Watson as a therapy dog.
