Dex Knows Best Dog Food Donates a Portion of Each Bag Sold to the Sarah Burke Foundation
Sarah Burke Foundation is Giving Away $15,000 in Scholarships to Athletes with Dreams. Winners will be announced on Dec. 15, 2018.
SQUAMISH, British Columbia, December 11, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Rory Bushfield, professional skier, filmmaker, reality TV star and founder of dog food company Dex Knows Best, has established a scholarship fund for promising athletes in honor of his late wife Sarah Burke, a four-time Winter X Games gold medalist and world champion freestyle skier. A portion of every bag sold of Dex Knows Best dog food is donated to the Sarah Burke Foundation. This month, the foundation will be donating $15,000 and announcing two scholarship winners on Dec. 15, 2018 (each athlete receives $7,500).
Sarah Jean Burke (Sept. 3, 1982 – Jan. 19, 2012) was so much more than just a successful athlete. She was a leader in the sports community, as well as a respected media personality and action sports icon. She was also an activist and a philanthropist, who devoted much of her life to helping others.
Burke was a Canadian freestyle skier and pioneer of the superpipe event. She was a four-time Winter X Games gold medalist and won the halfpipe world championship in 2005. She successfully lobbied the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to have the event added to the Olympic program for the 2014 Winter Olympics. She was considered a medal favorite in the event. Burke died following a training accident in Utah.
Rory Bushfield, Sarah's widower and founder of Dex Knows Best, said, "Each year, we look to sponsor athletes under 18 that have dreams, drive and a clear vision. We are excited to announce this year's scholarship winners on Dec. 15, 2018."
