Talon Grips holding fundraiser for employee with brain cancer
October 5, 2016
Steamboat Springs — Steamboat Springs company Talon Grips, the maker of specially designed gun handle grips, is holding a fundraiser Wednesday to raise money for employee Kevin Kolvereid, who is battling brain cancer.
Kolvereid, known as KC, lives in Steamboat Springs with his wife, Gina, and three children, and he learned last October that he has Glioblastoma Multiform, an aggressive form of brain cancer.
Kolvereid has been a part of the Talon Grips team for four years, ever since he instructed a firearms class to other Talon Grips employees.
On Wednesday, Talon Grips will hold one of their largest sales of the year, selling grips for $14.99 and donating 100 percent of the retail sales from that day to Kolvereid and his family.

Talon Grips staff said Kolvereid, an Army veteran and physician's assistant with an impressive list of lifetime accomplishments, is deserving of the fundraiser.
"For four years, Kevin has been an unwavering supporter of Talon Grips, bringing valuable perspective to the company and unrivaled energy," Talon Grips officials said. "He's that memorable guy. The one you feel like you have known forever, even though you just met him."
More information about Kolvereid and Talon Grips is available on the company's website.
