Live Like Sam Partners with Woodward West to Empower Young Athletes to Excel Beyond Sport
Partnership to Provide Merit Scholarship for Week of Summer Camp at Woodward West
PARK CITY, Utah, May, May 14, 2019 – Live Like Sam, a nonprofit organization in honor of late Sam Jackenthal, has partnered with Woodward West, an action sports camp and part of Woodward, to help make one young athlete’s dreams a reality.
The Woodward West and Live Like Sam Summer Camp Merit Scholarship covers the cost of one week of camp at Woodward West, a $1200 – $1500 value.
“We want to ensure that this scholarship goes to someone who embraces Live Like Sam’s core CARE principles of community, athletics, responsibility and education, and who will be truly grateful for the opportunity to spend a week progressing – both as an athlete and as a person – during his or her time at Woodward West,” says Ron Jackenthal, founder of Live Like Sam.
Based in Park City, Utah, Live Like Sam was established in 2017 in memory of the late Park City native Sam Jackenthal, who was a young man of strong character and values and who was also a world-class, up and coming athlete. At just 15 years old, Sam won the overall combined title at the U.S. Junior Freestyle Championship and was ranked as one of the top 20 under-18 freestyle skiers in the world.
Sam was also a top-ranked international inline skater, which he learned from attending camp at Woodward West. Sam spent many weeks as a camper at Woodward West over six consecutive years. “Woodward was Sam’s hands-down favorite place in the world,” adds Jackenthal. “Sam used to say, ‘There are only two things in life we can control, our attitude and our activity,’ and Woodward taught Sam how to elevate both.” Sam passed away when he was 16 years old in 2015 from injuries suffered in a skiing training accident in Australia.
