On last week’s Sunday Journal Kari Steele talked with the incredibly inspirational Winter Lee Vinecki “Winter” Winter was born on December 18, 1998 in Grand Rapids Michigan. She grew up in Gaylord Michigan and Salem Oregon and now trains in Park City, Utah. After losing her Dad at the age of 9 to an aggressive form of prostate cancer, she formed TeamWinter.org a 501 (c) (3) non-profit to raise money for prostate cancer research & awareness. She’s raised over $400,000 toward that effort and counting.
