USARC Ski-A-Thon Helps Those With Disabilities Enjoy The Slopes

Big Bear, Ca, February 20, 2012, 3:00pm – Skiers and snowboarders can spend a day on the slopes, never wait in a lift line, enjoy a complimentary lunch, have chances to win great prizes, celebrate at an after-ski party with silent auction and entertainment, and do it all to support children and adults with disabilities. The 2012 USARC Ski-A-Thon is less than two weeks away on Saturday, March 3 at Bear Mountain, and there is still plenty of time for you to register and participate. This FUNdraising day on the slopes enables winter sports enthusiasts to generate much needed resources for the United States Adaptive Recreation Center (USARC,) the non-profit organization that has provided adaptive recreation programs for over twenty years.  Located at Bear Mountain, the USARC is an independent organization dedicated to the belief that success in challenging outdoor experiences not only brings a necessary and healthy component to the lives of those with disabilities, but that the resulting self-confidence can be transferred to other aspects of their lives.  Proceeds from the Ski-A-Thon are used to purchase specialized ski equipment, train hundreds of volunteers, and subsidize the cost of providing one-on-one private lessons to Southern California’s disabled community. Donors can deduct pledges on their taxes. For more information about the Ski-A-Thon, and to get involved, go to usarc.org or call the USARC at...
