The Dirksen Derby is a three-day event dedicated to Tyler Eklund, a Bend snowboarder who suffered a spinal cord injury after crashing his board at the U.S. Snowboard and Freeski Association Nationals at age 14, paralyzing him from the neck down.

Dirksen Derby was born in an effort to help Eklund pay his medical bills and has grown into a fundraiser for Protect Our Winters, Oregon Adaptive Sports and Central Oregon Avalanche Association.

This year the event will include 17 snowboard and sit-ski divisions.
