Team TC's Road to 2018 Korea
Organized by: Tyler Carter
“Never ever give up, because you can accomplish anything if you try"
Tyler “TC” Carter - Paralympic Skier, yogi, motivational speaker, and youth mentor lost his right leg below the knee at the age of one. Growing up with a disability, Tyler had two options: let his disability control him or push the boundaries that surrounded him. Choosing the latter, with his positive outlook on life, Tyler has strived to live his life to the fullest while helping others along the way. Always up for trying new things, he eventually found skiing and fell in love with it. Making the 2014 U.S. Paralympic Team, Tyler competed in the Sochi Winter Paralympic Games in the Giant Slalom Event. He has competed at an elite level at World Cup and World Championship level events. Currently Tyler is training for the Pyeongchang, South Korea Paralympic Winter Games in 2018. When Tyler is not racing down the slopes, you will usually find him volunteering his time with various non-profit programs. A huge believer in giving back, Tyler especially enjoys promoting living healthy and active lifestyles with youth and individuals with disabilities. He only recently found his passion for yoga and is currently studying to become a teacher so that he will have another avenue to help others. Tyler has co-led hikes at Wanderlust, backpacked the Presidential Traverse in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, coached ski camps, and been a counselor at youth camps. He also works with schools and youth around the country giving motivational speeches and mentoring students.
Tyler is looking for financial sponsors to help him train and work towards his goal of competing in the 2018 Paralympic Games as a skier. Ski racing is an expensive sport and costs around $30,000 each year. This includes buying new equipment (such as skis and ski boots, ski prosthesis), seasonal lodging, food costs, race fees, traveling fees, and much more. Any donation will help him work towards his goal of going back to the Paralympics in 2018 in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
