REALTORS® honor Mike Ruspil with Community Service Award
The Grand Junction Area REALTOR® Association (GJARA) presented local leader Mike Ruspil with its Community Service Award to honor his many and extraordinary volunteer contributions to the community. The award was presented at the association’s recent inaugural and awards ceremony.
Ruspil began volunteering with Special Olympics in 1976 as a teenager. A neighbor who had special needs inspired him. After growing up in California, he moved to Grand Junction with his family in 1988, where he began teaching adaptive PE and organizing Special Olympic (SOCO) events within the school district.
Whether on the ski slopes, in the bowling alley, or any sports field, Ruspil can be found cheering on “his” athletes. He takes the time to know their names, interests, and even their families. He encourages them to lead active lives, fostering a love of sports and outdoors. And he sees each student as a unique individual and encourages him or her to do their best.
Beyond working with athletes directly, Mike is actively involved in fundraising for SOCO programs.
