Hey, you know Sean Pettit? That dude that’s super good at skiing and snowboarding? Yeah, us too. He’s not just rad at sliding on snow, he’s also well-intentioned. Check out this raffle with a cause.
SOME WORDS BY SEAN PETTIT
ILSA, Indigenous Life Sport Academy, is an organization in Canada that provides Indigenous youth with the opportunities to experience a variety of sports like skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, and hiking to name a few. There is no denying that it is a privilege to be able to ski and snowboard locally, or at any other resort. Having grown up around Pemberton and Whistler I feel it is my duty to help the community and to begin, I am raffling off my own personal snowboard, the K2 x Vintage Sponsor edition. 100% of proceeds from raffle ticket purchases will be donated to ILSA.
Please consider buying a raffle ticket, or support your community and peers in other ways. If you have any questions, please send me a message at @seanpettit on Instagram.
By providing Indigenous youth with unstructured and semi-structured sports alike, the Indigenous Life Sport Academy (ILSA) creates social change and development within Indigenous communities. ILSA provides Indigenous youth with opportunities to play, express themselves, improve both their mental and physical health, as well as learn skills such as snowboarding, skateboarding, biking, climbing, hiking, and more that can benefit them long into their adult years. These healthy sport-based outlets assist in the relief of conscious and subconscious stresses induced by inter-generational trauma within Indigenous communities.
