Thanks to a partnership with Porter and Ann-Toy Broughton, Teton Adaptive Sports now has access to a TrailRider, a Canadian engineered piece of equipment that is designed to help people with limited mobility explore backcountry single track trails. With the aid of 2 “sherpas”, the TrailRider can get you to places no off road wheelchair or hand cycle can. Check out http://www.kawak.ca/. Here’s Porter on a recent trip to Two Oceans Lake in Grand Teton National Park- “as an avid back country enthusiast, (hiker, skier, trekker, camper) I am delighted to once again get back out there after being in a chair for 8 years…good attitude, good friends, and determination are what makes the possibilities endless.” The TrailRider is available for borrowing. Contact Kurt Henry at 307-699-3554 or email@example.com.
Its been a long run and I have enjoyed every second, but there always comes a time when the torch has to be passed along. Whether it was on the slopes, paddling whitewater, or climbing in the Tetons: the athletes of Teton Adaptive Sports have never ceased to amaze me. Thank you all for inspiring me, you have always been and will always continue to be family!
I huge thanks goes out to Kurt Henry for being my mentor, confidant, and friend for the last ten years at Teton Adaptive Sports. Its a huge comfort to know that Kurt along with Jason Malczyk and Cherene Vanian as supervisors will be there still to help these incredible athletes slide down the hill, splash in the water, and keep on smiling!
Here is a trailer from an upcoming film from one of our partner organizations: The Joe Stone Foundation. The documentary isn’t out yet, but should be soon.
