Kennedy has volunteered with Challenge Aspen, along with his son Cameron, since 2001. Challenge Aspen is an organization that makes possibilities for people with disabilities in Snowmass Village. Last year Kennedy initiated a fundraiser for the organization which sells benches in the base village of Snowmass Ski Area for $3,500 with the funds supporting Challenge Aspen.
Most benches are dedicate as a memorial with a custom plaque. To date, Challenge Aspen has raised $39,500 through the sale of 12 benches.
The Snowmass Rotary Club, of which Kennedy is a contributing member, has chosen to dedicate a bench in honor of his service to the community through Rotary and with Challenge Aspen.
The bench honoring Kennedy will be presented on March 28, following the weekly Rotary meeting.
