On March 24th, Sally Francklyn was seriously injured in a skiing accident while riding at Jackson Hole with friends. The 24-year-old Colorado Springs native remains in a stable yet in a delicate state in ICU after tumbling hundreds of feet, and enduring a helmet-shattering cranial impact. The young skier was a beloved member of the snow sports community, and a 10-year veteran of the Copper Mountain Ski Patrol. As a gesture of love and unwavering support for Sally, Copper has renamed the “Super Hero” heat at this year’s upcoming CopperMan Adventure Race to now be the “Super Hero Sally” heat!

Starting today, Super Woman Sally Supporters will have the option of purchasing a $49 entry for this heat, and 50% of proceeds will benefit Sally’s recovery. There will be Super Hero Capes will be sold during the event for $10, of which 100% of proceeds will also be donated medical costs. There will be an obstacle during the race called “Leap of Faith” — where race participants will show their support through entertaining and creative super hero leaps.

There has been an outpouring of support across the world, with countless individuals invested in the young woman’s recover. Sally’s brother, Chris Francklyn has been diligently updating his sister’s Facebook Page with commentary and updates to her condition.
