The Lyndon Ellefson Scholarship

 
 
 

The Lyndon Ellefson Scholarship provides financial assistance to a Vail Valley athlete who excels in their sport, but needs financial assistance to continue to their athletic goals. Lyndon Ellefson was a runner who lived in the Vail Valley for TK years before tragiacally passing away on a training run before a race in the Swiss Alps in 1998. Ellefson was known as a kind hearted husband, father, and athlete, always encouraging others to meet their athletic goals. We hope to be able to pass on aid through this scholarship to honor his name.
