There are very few words that I can put together to describe what Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra has done for my life, let alone others. The effect of coming here goes way beyond learning how to slide down the hill and look cool. As instructors, we gain perspective and appreciation for the parts of our lives we don't realize we take for granted. And students gain new and fun ways to figure out how their bodies can move which brings reality to the idea of "I can do this" instead of "I can't". Friendships from all around are formed and integration into a recreational lifestyle is possible. I would say that I've not only grown to become a mentor for some of the athletes that I have worked with, but above all, a lot of the athletes that I have worked with have mentored me. The people I work with both on and off the hill here are responsible for guiding me into a better instructor and person. That being said, your donation to Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra allows us to provide these life changing experiences to athletes who need help getting here. Every dollar counts and every share makes sure to get the word out about DSES and the wonderful things that go on up in this paradise!!!
