Congrats to our January Volunteer of the Month, Brody! Our @chill_pdx Coordinator, Patrick, had this to say about Brody (this is a long post but it's worth a read!): Brody Faltermeyer is a new volunteer for the #Portland crew, but he has come in with a ton of passion and enthusiasm. He originally reached out to us because of how much boardsports have meant to him throughout his life. Originally from Hawaii, Brody grew up surfing, but relocated to the #PNW and picked up snowboarding. He says it’s where he finds his center, and really wanted a chance to share that with kids who need it. At the start of our second week, Brody had driven ahead of the bus to get people organized at @mthoodmeadows (our Portland program partner). Along the way, he encountered a truck that had hit the embankment and had come to a stop at its side in the middle of the dark road. He stopped to help with the situation, only to have his own car struck by another vehicle. He was soon helping not one, but two drivers. Even amongst the chaos, Brody kept telling me he just wanted to get these youth up snowboarding. At Chill we talk about #courage and #responsibility, which are two of our six Core Values. I believe Brody embodied both those Core Values in his actions that night. Furthermore, his commitment to continue with the program (something many would probably opt not to do!) shows how amazing Brody is as a person and mentor. We’re truly lucky to have him with us! Thank you Brody, and all our volunteers, who go above and beyond every day to make sure Chill is the best it can be.
