The city of Colorado Springs is gathering reflections from community members on their personal connections to Pikes Peak. It’s part of a campaign called “My Mountain” leading up to completion of the Pikes Peak Summit Complex later this year. The city has shared audio versions of several stories with 91.5 KRCC, which we have edited for broadcast.
Today we hear from Atharva Vispute, a student at Rampart High School and one of the city’s 2019 Young Champion Ambassador. That means he’ll represent Colorado Springs during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay in our Sister City of Ancient Olympia, Greece, in March.
