Endless Abilities has worked closely with New England Disabled Sports since October 2010. Their adaptive skiing program at Loon Mountain in New Hampshire granted us a scholarship to rent a monoski and learn from world class instructors such as Paralympic skiier Geoff Krill. We are proud to work with one of the nation’s most active leaders in adaptive sports, and thanks to them, we can look forward to the winter again!
Late last summer, Endless Abilities began sailing with Piers Park Sailing Center in Boston Harbor. Their adaptive sailing program allowed us to get out on the water with friends Emily Obert, Brenna Bean, and Paralympic sailer Maureen-McKinnon Tucker. Let’s do it all again this summer!
The Rhode Island chapter of the Surfrider Foundation has just begun to show their support by promoting Endless Abilities through their strong local network. We look forward to meeting fellow surfriders here at home, and eventually in southern California!
The State of Rhode Island’s Office of Rehabilitation Services has allowed Wind Powered Productions to hire Zack Bastian as a paid production and post-production intern. Give Kathleen Neun a great big hug if you ever see her around South County, and a special thanks goes out to everyone else at ORS!
The Patagonia retail store in Boston has donated some of their most durable skiing gear to Endless Abilities. They have also expressed interest in screening the final film in their Newbury Street store next Spring. We were proud to make Patagonia our dress code in New Hampshire this winter and we will be wearing it all the way to the west coast!
Challenged Athletes Foundation grants funds to disabled athletes across the nation. Their support of $3,000 will allow Endless Abilities to invest in adaptive skiing equipment for next winter. Anyone can apply, so submit today and come skiing with us next year!
12 Meter Charters donated a two hour charter on one of their famous America’s Cup yachts to our auction at the fundraiser event on June 10. If you are interested in an amazing evening of sailing in Newport be sure to check them out. Thank you Meredith Harrop!
Mike Nunnery with Nunnery Orthotics and Prosthetics was one of Endless Abilities first sponsor. Nunnery O and P was launched by Mike in 1995 and is doing business out of the Rhode Island area since. Mike helped Endless Abilities by supporting our first fundraising event, and contributing to travel expenses that we encounter over the course of each day of shooting.
Break Water Surf Company was also one of our first sponsors to our project. As a new company, Breakwater is making their presence known as one of the popular surf and apparel stores in downtown Newport. Like Nunnery Orthotics and Prosthetics, Breakwater supported Endless Abilities by supporting our first fundraising event.
Northeast Passage is a non-profit organization in the heart of the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH. As a student of UNH, Will grew close to the organization and in turn gained their support. Northeast Passage is now supporting EA by putting us in touch with their many contacts along our route.
Endless Abilities was first introduced to the Hartford Insurance Company by way of competition for overcoming a disability. We ended up winning the competition and in turn received a grant and endless support from the Hartford community. The Hartford is a proud supporter of the US Paralympic Team, and are one of the team’s biggest sponsors.
Late this fall we gained the support of a national organization for those who are disabled – Disabled Sports of USA. Currently we have support from a few of DS/USA’s 100 chapters, New England Sports and Northeast Passage, who have played a large part in the success of our project. With the support from DS/USA we are gaining access to many more partners across the country, and will be able to hear many, many more stories from people state to state.
