Description

The Vermont 100 Endurance Race is one of the original 100 mile runs in the USA and a part of the Grand Slam Series of Ultrarunning. Each year, 300 runners attempt to finish this hilly race over beautiful Vermont back roads and trails under the 30 hour cutoff point, and a well-trained few finish in under 24 hours. The race proceeds support Vermont Adaptive.

I know what it is like to be injured and not know whether or not I will ever be able to ski or experience the outdoors in the same way again. I participated in an adaptive ski program in Colorado the winter after I was injured. It gave me the confidence to get back out there and do what I love to do. Today, I am a professional ski patroller in Vermont. I don't think I'd be in this positiion if it weren't for my experience with the adaptive ski program. For these reasons I have decided that this year I'd run the VT 100 to help support a similiar program, Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. My hope is that with our contributions others can experience the same success that I did.

Competing in the VT 100 is a challenge that I look forward to meeting this summer. While I have spent hours, days, months and even years training for this event, it is something that I have been passionate about. There are people out there for whom just getting out to walk can be a challenge. Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports provides sports and recreational programs as well as wellness and environmental retreats to people with disabilities. Their programs are offered to people of all ages, with a variety of disabilities. Programs include skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and Nordic in the winter; and sailing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, cycling, rock climbing, horseback riding, and more in the warmer months.

Please consider donating to help me reach my goal and help Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports.
Thank you.
