Greetings friends and family! (Warning: TLDR - Help support VT Adaptive Ski and Sports!)

As I write to you from (currently snowy) Colorado, I am looking back at all of my fond memories of Vermont.  College and post college ski trips to Smugs and Stowe, visiting an old family run dairy farm, friends weddings, getting lost in a corn maze (more than once), visiting my brother and his new family (sledding in our wedding finery), running up Mount Mansfield, running through corn fields, moose spotting and the Long Trail all bring a smile to my face.

No physical activity in Vermont is more iconic than the Vermont 100.  It is one of the original, grand-daddy ultra-endurance races in the United States.  I am lucky enough to have been selected in the race lottery this year to toe the line.  I look forward with great anticipation to meeting the challenge.

There are people out there for whom just getting out to walk can be a challenge. People who need a little extra assistance to meet the challenge that brings health, fun and passion to their lives. Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports provides sports and recreational programs as well as wellness and environmental retreats to people with disabilities. Their programs are offered to people of all ages, with a variety of disabilities. Programs include skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and Nordic in the winter; and sailing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, cycling, rock climbing, horseback riding, and more in the warmer months.

Please consider donating what you can to help me reach my goal and help Vermont Adaptive meet their goal too! 
Thank you!
