More than 400 disabled Veterans to take on Snowmass Mountain for adaptive sports challenge
WHAT: The Department of Veterans Affairs and Disabled American Veterans will host its 37th annual National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic, March 25–31, in Snowmass, Colorado.
WHO: Since 1987, the clinic has afforded nearly ten thousand Veterans the opportunity to overcome perceived limitations while encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle. Often referred to as “Miracles on a Mountainside,” NDVWSC allows Veterans with disabilities such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and blindness to participate in activities many of them never believed possible. This year, approximately 400 Veterans with disabilities are expected to participate.
WHY: The annual clinic showcases the health and rehabilitative benefits adaptive sports provide Veterans. The clinic offers participants sports therapy opportunities including Alpine and Nordic skiing, sled hockey, scuba diving, snowmobiling and rock climbing.
WHEN: March 25-31
WHERE: Snowmass Village, Colorado
