Helping Veterans through Winter Sport
Teaching Veterans how to ski and snowboard inspires those with illnesses and injuries to face their challenges head on.
Since 2011, True Patriot Love has provided more than $130,000 to fund the Canadian Association of Disabled Skiing Winter Sports Clinic. This unique program helps service men and women overcome their mental and physical injuries through the power of winter sport.
By teaching participants how to ski and snowboard, this program hopes to inspire those with illnesses and injuries to face their challenges head on. Spouses and children are also encouraged to participate in the clinic which fosters healing for the entire family.
In 2017, the program saw increased participation with 28 military members and Veterans and 9 spouses in attendance for the five-day clinic.
