Courageous Leadership Profile
Ladd and Sigrid Thorne
Since 2012, Courageous has been addressing challenges head on through our Reach Initiative, which targets all barriers to participation for kids at every level of our program, and through our Swim Sail Science program, an intensive two-year program for rising 4th and 5th graders that blends sailing, swimming and academics (in partnership with Boston Public Schools) that has been proven effective at reducing summer learning loss.
Ladd and Sigrid Thorne have been champions of these programs from their inception. This year they channeled their energy into making Fund-A-Future and over-the-top success, and in doing so, helping to secure the future of the Reach Initiative and Swim Sail Science for next year’s students.
