Smith releases limited edition Sarah Burke Memorial I/OS goggle
Sun Valley-based Smith Optics just released 180 pairs of limited edition Sarah Burke Memorial I/OS goggles, which will be available at smithoptics.com. The I/OS—a goggle that Sarah helped Smith create—is inspired by Sarah’s snowflake tattoo and has been done up in her favorite colors. All proceeds from the goggle will go directly to the Sarah Burke Foundation, which helps youngsters reach the next level in skiing and raises money for the St. Jude’s Foundation, Sarah’s favorite charity.
“Sarah was a beloved member of Smith,” says the company. “More than just an athlete or friend, she was family and an inspiration to all of us. Help carry on her legacy by living your life with passion, dedication, and grace. As Sarah would say, ‘Dream without Fear’.”
