Calling All Prep Parents, Family & Friends!
WOW, I cannot believe that we are already in the second half of our Preppies 10-month program. This has been both a challenging and an amazing year for our Cadet Candidates. As we continue to face unprecedented spikes in COVID-19 cases across the globe and within the city of Colorado Springs; our USAFA Prep leadership has established a new calendar that provides our CCs the opportunity to look forward to some well deserved time away from their rigorous schedules but also considers their health, wellbeing and safety. Due to this, Katrina Claydon and I are looking at establishing a three month crowdfunding page for parents to contribute to a pool of funds that will be leveraged to provide our preppies activities to look forward to during their breaks.
This crowdfunding page will be set up to allow parents to contribute as often as they feel moved to contribute and will be the only crowdfunding we will offer to cover the preppies from now until graduation. Based on the dates that our preppies have ‘time off’ we have several open weekends that the leadership can plan activities. Currently we are considering fun activities such as: paint balling, bowling, laser tag, food trucks and potentially field trips off base. In addition to these fun activities, Katrina and I would like to consider - assuming we are able to come together at graduation - having a catered event for the parents and Cadet Candidates during the graduation weekend. All of this is possible with your generosity and consideration. So, please consider what you are able to contribute... and know that we have three months to make this crowdfunding activity successful. Our goal for the second half of the year is $50,000!! Let’s make this happen!
This time we are also looking for your best holiday family pics to include on this page, so send them our way!!
All the best,
Melissa Jankowski and Katrina Claydon
