Michigan Adaptive Sports

I have worked with Michigan Adaptive Sports for the last four years. We teach people with disabilities to participate in sports like water and snow skiing. Last year we had a 17 year old amputee learn to snowboard and by the end of the year he was racing. we have taught people with severe physical limitations to enjoy the great outdoors and participate with their families. This specialized equipment is very expensive and costs several thousand dollars. All of our instructors and buddies are volunteers. We have no paid staff. I love this organization and the smiles that we put on children, and adults faces when they participate. We accept people of all ages from young child to senior citizen. Thank you for your consideration.
