Fundraising


 

Dear Friends and Supporters:

Have you ever noticed a disabled person and thought how lucky you are to be able to walk, think, see and hear, without giving it a second thought?  Have you ever counted your blessings because you’re able to live a “normal” life?  When you think of the everyday challenges disabled individuals face, it is inspiring just to see how bravely they manage their day-to-day lives.  Now, imagine this same individual skiing down Mammoth Mountain!  Incredible? You bet!  Impossible?  No way!  It happens every month through Disabled Sports USA of Orange County.

Our organization, DSUSA-OC, provides this opportunity for disabled children and adults.  The heart of this program is to teach disabled individuals how to ski in a safe, fun, and nurturing environment.  Through this sport, however, a much bigger lesson is being learned by all involved — self-esteem and confidence.  The freedom of skiing and the success of learning a new skill bring to life the guiding philosophy of our group:

“If I Can Do This, I Can Do Anything!”

 

DSUSA-OC is a labor of love that exists because of the generosity of volunteer instructors, parents, students, and doctors who donate their time and energy to making this group a reality.  Mammoth Mountain also endorses us by generously donating lift tickets for students and instructors.

Because of the high medical costs associated with having a disability, many of our students would not be able to afford to participate if we charged for the instruction or equipment.  Unlike other groups, we provide these free-of-charge.  However, specialized equipment designed for disabled individuals is very expensive and costly to maintain.  That is why we need your help!

We are a solely self-supporting, non-profit organization.  We have no paid staff and receive no support from the government.  The funds to keep this program alive are raised through private/corporate donations, and annual events that we host through out the year.

Please find a place in your heart to assist so that these disabled individuals can experience a new sense of freedom, accomplishment and success that they may have never felt before!  If you want to know more, please ask a student or volunteer what this group means to him or her.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
