Mountains to the Desert Classic 2022

Donation Goal: $150,000

The Mountains to Desert Classic is a fundraiser for the Just for Kids Foundation. JFK was founded in 2000 by Bill Carstens, long-time Telluride resident, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.

Through a competitive annual grant process, JFK provides support to organizations that serve children throughout the San Miguel Watershed, including the towns of Telluride, Norwood, Nucla, Naturita, Paradox and all points in between. JFK particularly target organizations that offer leadership opportunities for children and projects that promote self-sufficiency and responsibility.

Mr. Carstens passed away in 2006 and while much of his entrepreneurial talent cannot be duplicated, the JFK board emphasizes a few core Carstens' imperatives: valuing innovation, pursuing a creative route to overcome challenges, intellectual vitality, and maintaining a grassroots familiarity with local needs. In addition to funding over 40 non profits annually, JFK also honors its founder through an annual "Man of La Mancha" college scholarship for graduating high school seniors who dream big, and achieve at the highest levels.

The Just For Kids Foundation is a 501c3. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by the Internal Revenue Service.
