Adaptive Skiing Lessons

My client is a young girl who was survived a brain tumor as a toddler and is now cancer free but lives with complex medical and physical needs. Her family tries to make sure that she is not excluded from opportunities for activities in the community due to her limitations or disabilities. My client does not want to sit on the sidelines, she wants to be like her siblings and classmates, and not let her disability define her. With the communities’ help, she was able to participate in adaptive skiing for the past two winters and loved it! She has the opportunity to participate again this winter in adapted skiing sessions in March 2024 through Padraigʼs Place (a non-profit organization) at Buck Hill in Burnsville MN. My client is very excited for this opportunity!! She and her family have seen firsthand the benefits of adapted sports when she participated in adapted softball, dance, and skiing in the past. The benefits include increased self-esteem, independence, sense of inclusion with an easier integration into the community, and also new found friendships. Physical activity through Adaptive sports also provides benefits to her health including improved strength and increased fine and gross motor skills. My client and her family would appreciate support with the participation cost for the Adaptive Skiing.
