Daniel, a fifth grader from West Rutland Elementary School won the golden ticket and thoroughly enjoyed his limo ride!


Each year, Come Alive Outside’s winter passports are delivered to all the elementary school kids in Rutland county, but this year, there was a unique twist to the passports. Inside one of the thousands of winter passports was a golden ticket. The finder of the golden ticket earned a limo ride with bigfoot and a pizza party with friends.

This year, Daniel, a fifth grader from West Rutland Elementary School was the lucky winner! Daniel took a limo ride home from school Friday, March 1, with friends Leo, Ethan and Wilder, his sisters Allison and Sarah.

Bigfoot was also there to deliver pizza and go along for the ride. Limo driver Paul Burroughs, owner of limo company Another Way Out took the group of happy kids on an hour-long tour of Rutland with Come Alive Outside outreach manager Christian Rudy serving as both host and Bigfoot translator.

“This is the best day of my life!” Daniel said.

Come Alive Outside will be offering more opportunities like this in the future to boost joy and encourage students to use the outdoor passports.

Come Alive Outside is a 501c3 nonprofit founded in 2014 that works closely with partners in healthcare, public health, outdoor recreation, and the landscape profession to connect individuals, families, and entire communities to the health and wellness benefits of outdoor spaces where they live, work, and play.
