Injured Skier's Classmates Send Get Well Message

The Winter Sports School

  Students at the Winter Sports School came back to class Monday after a week off.  While they were gone, one of their classmates, Sam Jackenthal, suffered a head injury in Australia.    One of the first things the students did was send a positive message to their friend.   KPCW’s Renai Bodley has the story.

From Team Park City United:

Many members of the Park City Community are interested in resources where they can receive support inthe form of counseling and also where they can provide support to Sam’s family as they navigate the difficult road ahead.

To make a financial contribution to help Sam, his mother, father and sister:

  • A GoFundMe page has been set up to support Sam and his family. http://www.gofundme.com/samjackenthal
  • A bank account at Zions bank is being set up and this post will be updated when that is complete.
