Executive

Troy Becker
President

Troy, founder of CRIS continues as our steadfast, level-headed leader and visionary. By observing what he does with his time you’ll soon see that Troy’s mountain man exterior is just camouflage for the big softy inside. His humanitarian nature shines through in his career as a Firefighter as well as in his voluntary job at CRIS. Once you experience a ‘Troy Hike’ that pushes your every limit, you may think that he is some sort of sadist… but when you conquer the mountain and witness the view from the summit, you will understand his motives and appreciate the grunt work that it takes to get there.

Clayton March
Vice-president

Clayton first came to us many years ago as a participant. Since then he has grown into a kind compassionate, well spoken board member, advocate and young man. We are thankful to have him working with us and grateful that he is always willing and ready for ANY Adaptive Adventure. A true pioneer.

Lynda Becker
Treasurer

Involved since CRIS’ first steps as well as teaching them to the Founder/President, Lynda has been (and is) a quiet and vital member of CRIS. We are lucky enough to have this lovely woman to make sure all things treasury related are dealt with in a timely and accurate fashion. On top of all of that she also assists on the adaptive winter activities.
