Fifteen months ago Ellie Pryor Booher was killed in an avalanche, leaving behind her husband Chris and two sons, Conrad, 4 and Jackson, 7.  Ellie’s passion, energy, kind spirit, and love for the outdoors inspired countless people on her path through life.  In hope of continuing Ellie’s goal to instill her love of the outdoors in this community, the Blue Lotus Foundation was born.  One of its main missions is to provide opportunities for children to explore, enjoy and cultivate a stewardship for the outdoors and their community.  Our first project is to build a hard surface pump track for the community of Leavenworth, Wa.  The pump track will be a place for our children to recreate while building skills, coordination, confidence and camaraderie with the goal of increasing their outdoor time and instilling a passion in outdoor activities.  So what is a pump track?  Check out the video below!  It is a great example of what we want to build.  
NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP!  We  have approval from the City of Leavenworth with donated land and their commitment to maintenance and liabilty.  We are currently applying for grants and talking to potential sponsors.  Our goal is to have this built in 2016 (why not?).  This is your chance to give back and support a great project to be enjoyed by countless children and the community as a whole!!!  With an overall projected cost of over $100,000, every donation helps!!!

Ok all you Blue Lotus and pump track fans... We have been working very hard behind the scenes to bring this project forward. We have just had a preliminary round of meetings with potential trucking and asphalt contractors, as well as other local businesses. With all of the excitement and pledges of support I think we have found ways to reduce our construction budget significantly! Woo-hoo!!! So I would like to drop the amount of our GoFundMe campaign as well. However, we still need to raise at least $20,000 to be eligible for a couple of Grants that we need to finish our project. If you have been thinking about giving, the sooner the better for our grant applications. Please pass this along to anyone who may support our cause.
Get Pumped!

Hello all... Please e-mail and share this link with your extended network if you believe in our cause and memorial efforts for Ellie. We are having an initial push for fundraising right now to help make us eligible for a few big grants we are trying to get. If we can show good progress in our efforts we can get a majority of costs covered by grants and sponsorship. Please help spread our story! Chris, Jackson & Conrad
She is worth it all and more.
