The Just Go Harder Foundation is a youth scholarship fund that enables deserving kids to enrich their lives through mentorship and participation in cycling and skiing sports. After becoming elite level alpine ski racers before climbing the ranks of the cycling world, Timmy and Ian realized how much the opportunity to ski and ride as well as the influence of mentors and coaches have truly shaped their lives. It wasn’t free skis or cross-country trips to races that made a difference, it was simply the opportunity to enjoy sport and be around mentors who genuinely care. Cycling and skiing are unique sports in that they are both very individual sports, yet success can only happen with a strong team. Participation in these sports teaches a variety of skills that young athletes can use both in sport and for the rest of their lives. If everybody had the chance to ride or ski, to have a mentor, and to have a dream, the world would truly be a better place. The mission of the Just Go Harder Foundation is to provide dreams, goals, and a path for kids through cycling and skiing.
The Just Go Harder Foundation is a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization that relies on fundraising and donations to offset the costs of sport and mentorship program fees.

Thanks, and please check in with us often!? The lessons learned, the obstacles overcome, the limits pushed, the goals attained…these things make up the spirit of sport. One must define success in sport based not on victories alone, but also ask the questions; did I push myself to the edge? Did I learn from my mistakes? How can I apply this to my life beyond sport? The Just Go Harder Foundation provides assistance to those pursuing the answer within themselves.
Timmy and Ian!
2011 Recipients of the Just Go Harder Foundation Scholarship
We are proud to announce the first recipient of a Just Go Harder Foundation cycling scholarship in 2011, Jacobo Jimenz. The Just Go Harder scholarship will cover his program fees and race entries for the Colorado High School Mountain Bike League. Jacobo is a junior at Boulder High School. He is a varsity wrestler and in the AVID program. AVID targets students in the academic middle who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum once they have been taught the study skills necessary to be successful in school. Typically, they will be the first in their families to attend college.
Introducing Just Go Harder Scholarship winner, ski racer Dayna Larson! Congratulations to Dayna Larson, member of the Eldora Mountain Ski Club, on her nomination for the most recent Just Harder Scholarship. A Nederland High School student, Dayna is a model athlete that uses her skills from elite sport on a daily bases to help her excel in the other areas of her life as well. Her drive and dedication for the sport of skiing are truly impressive and it is unacceptable to see her access to the sport limited because of cost. We hope the Just Go Harder Scholarship will take some of the burden away so she can focus on her ski racing!
