Last night, the power of sport was evident at the 2016 Colorado Springs Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony as The Sports Corp and guests celebrated the accomplishments of the 2000 Palmer High School Men’s Basketball team and numerous sports figures in the Pikes Peak Region.
In their first 4 months of El Pomar's two-year professional development program, 1st Year Fellows summited a 13er in the Sangre de Cristos, began learning strategic planning principles through a Nonprofit Management course, and helped convene community leaders from across the state to discuss the future outlook of Colorado through a philanthropic lens.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo surprised our staff today with a visit from a scary but friendly "spider women" who delivered bugs and kisses around the Foundation!
Special thanks to the President and CEO of The Sports Corp, Tom Osborne, for not only sharing his professional journey in the sports industry but also encouraging Fellows to use their platform as a tool to build a strong network in their field of interest. http://bit.ly/2f9GtNQ
