"The vision of locally owned Breeze Thru Car Wash, is providing for the community. In keeping with this vision, since 2010, Breeze Thru has hosted an annual fundraiser, where they donate all of the day’s car wash proceeds to Larimer County Search & Rescue.
Breeze Thru supports LCSAR because millions of people visit the mountains in Larimer County, Colorado each year. A few will become lost, stranded or injured and some will die. This year, LCSAR is celebrating 40 years of locating and rescuing the lost, stranded or injured and educating the public on wilderness and mountain safety as a free service. LCSAR is an independent non-profit corporation so they rely heavily on donations.
For the safety and effectiveness of LCSAR’s daily operations, Breeze Thru was pleased to offer this fundraiser on September 28, 2019 at their five Larimer County locations so that Search and Rescue may upgrade and replace their aging communication and GPS systems with modern technology such as radios, ruggedized tablets, laptops, Wi-Fi internet connectivity and training. New equipment will allow Search and Rescue to do real-time tracking, improve remote communications and give new capabilities such as using online maps.
This year the amount raised was $11,047 in car wash proceeds and $3400 in cash donations from the community for a total of $14,447. Thank you Larimer County for another successful FUNdraiser!" - Linda Diehl
