In January, Richard returned to the Celebrity Sports Invitational, held again this year at the Resort at Squaw Creek, California. Richard participated in the Broomball Competition, and scored at least one goal, helping his Team Paul Mitchell to victory over Team Red Robin by a score of 7 to 4. An excellent skier, he also participated in the Alpine Race, earning a time of 20:07, and leading his Team Mouton Cadet to a first place victory.
The Celebrity Invitational was hosted by Robert Kennedy, Jr. in support of his Waterkeeper Alliance. Over a half million dollars was raised to help protect and restore waterways around the world.
