True story: Brothers, Oscar and Lalo Romero had been in and out of foster care for over five years before they found their loving home with Mountain Circle. Like many foster teens, they struggled with a lack of direction and self-confidence, but Mountain Circle offered a unique program to support them- the PowderQuest Ski Trip. Oscar now attends college in Santa Cruz and Lalo is a student at Feather River College in Quincy, CA; they are young men with plans to achieve their goals and the self-knowledge that they can accomplish anything. Both Oscar and Lalo attribute their success to their mentors at Mountain Circle and the skills they gained by participating in the PowderQuest Program. “We get to go snowboarding every year with amazing people and have gained confidence, team building, and networking skills during the trip!” Now the boys return as Youth Mentors for the younger foster teens. For over 30 years, Mountain Circle has made a difference to kids just like Oscar and Lalo, and today we’re asking for your help. This year, Mountain Circle was able to provide the PowderQuest program to 30 foster teens- all because of Charity Runners. From them, and all of us at Mountain Circle, THANK YOU!
