2nd Annual Ski Trip

On Friday, February 28, 2020, the Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center hosted our Second Annual Adaptive Ski Trip. We had six patients, ages 10 to 35, and their family members who joined us at Windham Mountain for a beautiful day of skiing and fun!

The patients participated in ski lessons, led by certified instructors from the Adaptive Sports Foundation. ASF has been providing sports and recreation opportunities to thousands of children and adults with both cognitive and physical disabilities since 1984. For almost every single patient that joined us this year, it was the first time they had ever been skiing or on the mountain with snow. The reactions of the patients were just as great as the parents. “We had such a great time, I have to figure out how we can make this happen more often, this has really changed my child’s life,” said one mother.

A special thanks to faculty and staff at the Weinberg Center for making this day possible!
