He has partnered with “SOS Outreach” in 2009 –2010 www.sosoutreach.com <http://www.sosoutreach.com> and will continue the relationship into the 2010 -2011. As a spokesperson and mentor, Chris visits schools throughout the state. Utilizing a multimedia presentation from his Warren Miller Film, Chris takes the students on a global journey. A number of educators have embraced the presentations, and used them to supplement the daily curriculum.
The presentations focus on inspiring youth to chase down their dreams, be responsible and achieve their goals through hard work and perseverance. SOS OUTREACH follows up by providing the opportunity to actually take the students out of the classroom and into the mountains. The combination opens a new world to the students and SOS participants.
The Chaos Development Flow Team represents the brand nationwide in events and films. Chaos is proud to sponsor this team so they can achieve in and advance the world of snow sports. The enthusiasm for their sport is contagious from within the company all the way to the spectator.
