After two years of being forced to host its annual event virtually due to the pandemic, Vermont Adaptive’s Charity Challenge will return as an in-person fundraising occasion next month at Killington Mountain Resort.
The event, now in its 12th year, has historically drawn hundreds of people to raise money for adaptive sports programs and athletes at Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, a nationally-recognized nonprofit that provides sports and recreational programs throughout Vermont to people with disabilities.
This year’s goal is to raise $300,000.
“We are excited to finally be back together as a community for our largest fundraising event of the year,” Erin Fernandez, executive director of Vermont Adaptive, said. “We still have a virtual option for those who want to participate but can’t make it on the June 18, but we think folks are ready to be together again, outside, enjoying recreation in the Green Mountains while supporting adaptive sports accessibility and programs.”
