Torin’s community work brings him back to his hometown of Leavenworth, WA where he and his one-time coach and long-time mentor, Greg Peck, are reviving the Have-A-Healthy-Heart Program in the Cascade School District. As a two-time Washington State Champion on the track --and as a two-time Olympian on skis --Torin has a hefty resume on which to base his encouragement of area youth to incorporate more physical activity into their daily lives. Additionally, Torin volunteers in Mr. Peck’s fifth-grade classroom, adding an extra dimension to geography lessons as he communicates electronically from stops on the World Cup circuit. He also works with the junior high cross-country and track teams to, in his words, mold them into “the envy of the state.”
