ROTARIANS PROVIDE HELPING HANDS
FOR ADAPTIVE SNOW SKI PROGRAM
 
On October 10, 2015 Rotarians from District 5950 assembled at the newly remodeled Hyland Hills Ski Area in Bloomington, MN to provide a helping hand to the Adaptive Ski and Snowboard Program (ASSP) of the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute.  Rotarians, family members and friends spent the morning cleaning and relocating the adaptive ski equipment from its old storage location to a new storage facility next to the chalet.
 
Plymouth Rotary sponsored a grant with collaboration from the Rotary Clubs of Edina, Golden Valley, Lake Minnetonka-Excelsior, and Minneapolis City of Lakes to provide $15,000 for new equipment for ASSP.  In addition, the project received a separate grant from Rotary District 5950.
 
More than 1,600 lessons are given each season by the ASSP, the largest sports and recreation program offered by Courage Kenny.  The goal of ASSP is to bring youth and adults with disabilities together with their families, friends and community volunteers to participate in a sport that challenges and motivates them to realize their true potential.  Courage Kenny provides all of the necessary adaptive equipment, specialized instruction, volunteer support and encouragement to ensure participants have a successful experience.
