Total Raised 2016-2021
The Heart Health Walk was established in memory of Rob Millisor, one of the owner/developers of Breckenridge Grand Vacations.
In October of 2015, Rob was on a humanitarian trip to the earthquake-stricken area of Langtang, Nepal when he suffered a fatal heart attack. Rob was very physically fit and unaware of any health issues. With the support from Breckenridge Grand Vacations, 100% of every dollar received at this event will be contributed to The Rob Millisor Heart Health Fund at The Summit Foundation to support heart health programs, education and research.
Over the past four years, many heart health programs in Summit County have been supported with the event proceeds. Colorado Mountain College teaches heart-healthy cooking classes every semester. Keystone Science School receives support for the CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) Afterschool Program. The CATCH program is designed to promote healthy physical activity and eating behaviors in children. Grants to Summit Medical Center have been used to purchase a supply of Infant CPR Anytime kits that teach lifesaving infant CPR and choking relief skills. The kits are provided free of charge to the parents of every baby born at our local hospital.
Several AED units have been purchased for installation at a number of new locations throughout the community including the Dental Clinic at the Summit Community Care Clinic, Moose Landing workforce housing and several additional AED units located in public areas. Five CPR training manikins were upgraded and replaced for BGV’s employee training program. Two cardiac monitor/defibrillators have been purchased for the Emergency Department at Summit Medical Center and the Red, White and Blue Fire Department. And a major grant was awarded to the newly created High Altitude Research Center at the hospital to perform groundbreaking studies focused on how high altitude impacts the health of Summit County residents. Additionally, a community-wide CPR/DEFIB Education Program through Starting Hearts for Summit County, Fairplay and Alma students was funded.

Breckenridge Grand Vacations is dedicated to responsible business practices that ensure minimal impact to the local mountain environment. These efforts include waste reduction, which is why we set up multiple Zero Waste Stations at our events. With the help of our volunteers located at stations offering compost, co-mingled and glass recycling, we are ensuring that we are diverting as much waste from the landfill as possible. BGV also works closely with our vendors to make sure they are following the same practices.
