Dear Teton Adaptive Supporters,
As 2022 comes to an end, it’s worth pressing the pause button to reflect on how many smiles we were able to create this past year. Many people living with disabilities both locally and visiting were able to enjoy more activities than ever before due the efforts of our staff, volunteers and partners at Teton Adaptive.
Our staple programs like skiing and sled hockey continue to hold strong and provided over 150 individuals with disabilities the opportunity to get out with their friends and families. We were able to grow our newer programs including adaptive mountain biking, paragliding and adaptive hiking in Grand Teton National Park. All these programs had significant numbers of participants stemming from both our regular clients and those who were just joining our programs for the first time. One of the most exciting parts about this past year was being able to reopen doors that had to be temporarily closed due to covid. Paddle Day being the perfect example of that.
Teton Adaptive is looking forward to seeing even more smiles through our community events like paddle days, adaptive mountain bike days, and our newest endeavor of adaptive cross-country skiing. Our goal is simple; to create accessible pathways for people with disabilities to get into the outdoors. Equally important is a movement to a truly inclusive environment that gives people with and without disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the Greater Teton Area together. We live in a very special place that continues to set the example of what inclusion can look like when we all work together.
As your new Executive Director at Teton Adaptive, I cannot thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to get people with disabilities outside. With your continued support, 2023 couldn’t look brighter.
