Live Like Sam supports youth from diverse backgrounds to develop a healthy sense of self-identity, character, purpose and connection to community by fostering positive well-being through educational programming and mental fitness initiatives. Live Like Sam aims to help individuals and their families thrive by empowering and championing youth development. We believe that social and emotional conditioning gives young adults the tools to positively impact their lives, the lives of others and to succeed in life.

People Who Live Like Sam Are
But what really separated Sam from many wasn't his athletic accomplishments, it was his character, the way he treated others and showed up for himself.Chris "Hatch" Haslock, Director, Freeski Division Park City Ski & Snowboard
Sam Was More Than Just An Athlete
While Sam was a talented, fearless and committed athlete, he was also generous and kind. It was through his character, not his talent, that Sam left behind a legacy of positivity in his community.
There are only two things in life we can control, our attitude and our activity.
Live Like Sam helps our youth gain a healthy sense of self and gives them the tools necessary to positively impact their community and excel in life.
Since 2017, we have raised over $200,000 to support over 200 youth and provided more than 30 scholarship programs.
