This summer I will be running in my first 100 mile race! Competing in the VT 100 is a challenge that I look forward to meeting this summer, this was supposed to happen last year but COVID had other plans. While I will spend many hours, days, months training for this event, it is something that I love to do, and thankful for the ability to do it, there are many 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. The organization believes sports and recreation provide a physical, mental and social experience that is immeasurable in promoting self-confidence and independence in an individual. 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.
HOW CAN YOU HELP
The VT 100 is the primary fundraiser for this amazing organization so, along with your encouragement and prayers, I ask that you consider donating what you can to help me reach my goal and help Vermont Adaptive meet their goal too!
