BENEFITING: CHALLENGE ASPEN
Challenge Aspen, an adaptive recreation nonprofit organization based in Snowmass Village, Colorado, is endeavoring to launch an adaptive offroad hand cycling program in the summer of 2016. Offroad hand cycles create possibilities for people with disabilities to enjoy the outdoors while also gaining the strength and self-confidence they need to confront the challenges they encounter in their daily lives. Funding for this program will support the purchase of bikes, helmets, and other cycling equipment. Funding will also support the purchase of a trailer to transport these bikes as well as instructor training and administrative support. Our goal is to offer individual and group lessons on and near Snowmass Mountain, so that participants can acquire the skills needed to ride on their own.
Please Note: If funds raised do not allow for the launch of an adaptive mountain biking program, monies will be allocated for the purchase of other adaptive equipment, in order to facilitate life changing experiences for people with disabilities.
