Hey everybody - this year I am participating in the Disabled Sports Ability Challenge. As you know, I broke my neck mountain biking in 2005. This event changed my life in so many ways, one of which being a severe limitation on my ability to get outside, get fit, and have fun. I began sit skiing with Disabled Sports in 2010 so that I'd be able to get back out on the mountain and ski with Aler. Learning to sit ski was one of the most challenging things I have ever done, and over three years and with the huge support of Disabled Sports, I'm finally back riding Alpine Meadows top to bottom.
The Disabled Sports organization is truly amazing and I have seen so many people's lives improved through getting out on the mountain and skiing. The people that use the program would not be able to get out there without the support of Disabled Sports and their selfless and committed staff and volunteers.
I ask you to join me in giving children with disabilities, adults with extreme challenges and wounded warriors disabled in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan a way to get out on the mountain, renew their self confidence, get fit, and inspire others to do the same. Specifically, I'm asking you to consider making a tax deductible donation. Please click here If you would like to learn more about Disabled Sports Far West.
Thank you all for your support. If you'd like to join Team Giffin and ski in the Ability Challenge on April 6th at Alpine Meadows, please let me know!
