Each year the Achiever students have a ski-a-thon fundraiser. This event consists of a mini- slalom-type race course on which students compete. Some students are stand-up skiers; some are in bi-skis, and some ride mono-skis, and each completes as many runs as they can to raise funds to provide future services, such as lessons and equipment. The students are quite different in their needs and capabilities, but each bring the same passion for life and a spirit of defying life's challenges. For my part, I am fortunate to volunteer with such an inspirational group of students and instructors. This year, I am running the LA Marathon in support of their cause.
