THE STORY:

Most of you know how much I love skiing--I raced on the Mammoth Mountain ski team for 6 years and I travel back and forth to Mammoth every weekend during ski season. Four years ago I decided to volunteer with Disabled Sports of Eastern Sierra (DSES) and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. DSES is a nonprofit that teaches more than 3,500 adaptive sports lessons per year. It is staffed primarily with volunteers. DSES believes the freedom and exhilaration of outdoor challenges changes lives and that no one should be left behind simply because of a disability. As a DSES volunteer I teach disabled kids and adults how to ski and I love being able to use my knowledge and experience to help. In the past four seasons I have volunteered over 900 hours and I am looking forward to many more. The people that I have worked with are amazing. I know I am their teacher, but I learn so much from them as well. This year I have worked with people with autism, downs syndrome, traumatic brain injuries, hearing impairments, visual impairments, ataxia, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, ADHD, fixed knees, spina bifida, wounded warriors and more. Without this program it would be very difficult for these kids and adults to ever learn to ski. Its gives me great satisfaction to see them accomplish more than they ever imaged and watch them having so much fun! DSES is hosting its annual Spring Expo on Saturday, April 2, 2016. All the adaptive equipment will be on display to raise money and awareness for people with disabilities. If you are in Mammoth, make sure you come by, but you do not need to be there to donate. I am asking my friends and family to help support this amazing program. My goal is to raise $2500. No donation is too small or too large. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. Thank you so much for your support -- and please forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
