Funded ProjectsBringing world-class ice climbing to people with disabilities
Regardless of ability, the Foundation hopes to give equal opportunities for people to experience nature and feel the exhilaration of outdoor adventure. For the second year, the Foundation is supporting Paradox Sports with a $1,000 grant to help bring together novice and advanced climbers with disabilities at Ouray Ice 2018. The event, held in February, gives participants a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn about the specialized equipment and techniques needed for adaptive ice climbing.
The event, two hours from Crested Butte in Ouray, brings together a community of volunteers and participants with disabilities in a world-class climbing venue in the beautiful Western Slope. This grant is used to provide scholarships to help people with disabilities enjoy climbing and the beautiful scenery when they may not otherwise have the opportunity.
