ARCO Grant, under the WCDF umbrella, provides financial assistance to U16 athletes with both merit and need. Founded by Olympian River Radamus, ARCO recognizes that grants alone are insufficient for talented athletes to thrive without financial means. Our mission goes beyond financial support, providing athlete, family, and organizational education and mentoring to maximize opportunities for success. River's own experience taught him the importance of forming habits and utilizing local resources to excel in skiing. The ARCO Grant aims to inspire a cultural shift towards efficient resource utilization and seizing all local opportunities.
