Following the recent success of the bike-building event during the Vista Outdoor Sales Conference, Vista Outdoor donated an additional 60 Giro helmets to the National Ability Center.
“The Giro helmets are used for those participating in our ski and snowboard program,” said Carey Cusimano, Major Gifts Officer of the National Ability Center. “This could be individuals signed up for lessons throughout the winter and/or our groups who come to us such as Unlimbited Camp, military groups and more.”
Cusimano continued, “The Giro helmets most recently donated were used by a group of 20 children from Shriners Hospital, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, who came to ski during the annual Unlimbited Camp. Each of these children has had an amputation, and National Ability Center is teaching them to ski or snowboard at Park City Mountain.”
For 30 years, the National Ability Center’s mission has been to provide programming that empowers participants of all abilities. Today, these programs engage more than 5,400 people of all abilities each year through 30,000 lessons and experiences in a wide variety of sports, recreation and educational activities. Participants come from all socioeconomic backgrounds, from 50 U.S. states and 18 countries around the globe.
