I’ve signed a team up to compete in the Disabled Sports USA Far West 2012 Ability Challenge. It is a fundraiser where you also get to compete in an All Mountain race by wearing a chip and skiing through different checkpoints. We are competing with an all female SheJumps Team. Each member has to raise $200, but my individual goal is to raise $500 for this stellar organization.

If you don’t know about Disabled Sports, it’s a non-profit that helps people get out and participate in adaptive sports at an affordable price. I started volunteering with both their skiing and whitewater programs last year and have had so many memorable days. Just a few days ago, on Christmas eve, we skied with a 55 year old woman who thanked us at the end saying that it was her best Christmas ever.
So, don’t make me beg and harass you like Donna Abadone or whoever your local NPR person is… donate! And, as always, thanks for reading this blog.
