Dear Current and Future Supporters of ASPNC,
As you may or may not know, I am on the board of The Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country based out of Franconia, New Hampshire. Our organization is a community-based organization that is committed to enriching the quality of life for people with disabilities through access to recreation! We have over 100 volunteers and provide year round activities for people with all disabilities. We take clients on over 1000 sessions per year including hiking, biking, tennis, golf, Nordic & Alpine skiing, gardening, sled hockey, power soccer, climbing, kayaking, and much more.
The good new is that all of our programs are over subscribed. It is worth noting that some of our programs have a fee, but our policy is to turn away no one, even if they can’t pay. The board is committed to maintaining this philosophy of access, but it has a cost: last year we had over $11,000 in uncollected fees. The bad news is that many of our athletes are supported through state and federal programs that are having their budgets cut. We have a $250,000 budget for which we raise 90% through donations. The Sunrise Ascent is by far our biggest fundraiser.
Sasha is an amazing person who I had the honor of working with last year. Severe weather on the mountain turned us away last year, but I know Sasha and the team are determined to make her first summit happen this August. By supporting Team Sasha, you will be supporting her access to recreation, and the access for athletes like her, throughout the year.
Thank you in advance for your support.
