🌟 A Magical Beginning to Summer at Torino Ranch! 

We are overjoyed to share the heartwarming memories from day two of our first summer camp of the season with the @nvccf Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation ️🎗️

Last week, Torino Ranch was filled with laughter, hope, and the incredible resilience of some truly inspiring kids. Watching these young warriors create lasting memories, form new friendships, and experience the pure joy of summer camp has been nothing short of magical.

From splashing in the pool to exploring the great outdoors, every moment was a testament to the spirit of community and the power of nature to heal and uplift. We are honored to provide a sanctuary where these children can escape, dream, and just be kids.

A huge thank you to the amazing staff, volunteers, and supporters who made this unforgettable week possible. Your dedication and love are the heartbeat of Torino Ranch and the Brett Torino Foundation.

Let’s continue to spread the love and support for these brave children and their families. Together, we can make a difference! 💖

In celebration of Earth Day 🌎, which we honor every day of the year through our conservation efforts 🌿, the Brett Torino Foundation joined forces with 75-100 dedicated volunteers for the Lovell Canyon Clean-Up last Saturday. 

Together, we filled an entire extra-large dumpster with discarded furniture, mattresses, a water heater, and an abundance of glass, cans, bottles, and other waste. 

It's truly humbling to have so much help from the community to continue the work we began in 2017, enhancing the beauty of Lovell Canyon. Together, we've turned it from a neglected, crime-ridden, toxic site into a thriving, verdant oasis, cherished by hikers, bikers, and families seeking solace in its majestic, cooler high elevations. 

A heartfelt 💚 thank you to @saveredrock, our community allies and volunteers whose dedication made this event a resounding success.
