When Eric was killed in 2004 while training in New Zealand to achieve his dream of making the U.S. Ski Team, the running clubs decided to designate the Eric Nageotte Scholarship Fund the beneficiary for this event.

Eric had been a club member with his dad, Ron Nageotte. As a student, Eric participated in many kids’ races.

This year, the fund benefited the entire Freestyle Team by paying for their gymnastic training. Jay Panther, a friend and teammate of Eric’s also was a recipient. The fund also helped two teammates from single-mom families.

Contributions are tax deductible.
