Hello Everyone! We thought it was about time we show you who team PPORA is, SO today we’re starting our staff highlights!
Starting with Becky Leinweber, our executive director!
Becky has served as PPORA’s executive director since 2017. PPORA's mission is to strengthen the outdoor recreation industry for the Pikes Peak region through leadership and collaboration. This mission resonates strongly with Becky, who finds the best part of the job is bringing passionate people together with different perspectives and experiences to work to create a better future for ourselves, our communities, and future generations through the outdoors.
Becky enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, and fly fishing. But her greatest passion is helping others enjoy these experiences and find the same sense of awe and respect for the natural world that she has.
It’s been a while since we formally introduced ourselves, so we thought it’d be helpful to share with you all a little bit about who we are!
Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance (PPORA) is a collaborative of outdoor businesses, nonprofits, government entities, and individuals who recognize the value of our region’s natural and recreation assets to our community both as an economic driver and for our health and well-being and the strength found in working together. PPORA’s mission is to strengthen the outdoor recreation industry for the Pikes Peak region through leadership and collaboration.
Led by a Board and Advisory Council consisting of outdoor industry and community leaders, including founding partners: Colorado Springs Chamber and EDC and Visit Colorado Springs, the organization works to make the Pikes Peak region known as THE place for outdoor recreation.
In the outdoors, we come together with friends and family, make lasting memories and find solitude and contemplation.
Join us as we shape the future of outdoor recreation for the Pikes Peak region!
Every year, on GivingTuesday, millions of people mobilize across the globe to show up, give back, and change their communities.
