The Sandy Hook-based Leaps of Faith Disabled Skiers (LOF) hit the slopes on Tuesday, February 26, at Mount Southington.
The skiers and LOF volunteers had a “great” afternoon, said Leaps of Faith President Joel Zeisler. “This snow ski clinic was our most successful event to date.” Attendance was sold out, and children, adults, and veterans with disabilities learned to ski.
The season’s last snow ski clinic is scheduled for March 12 at Mount Southington. All adaptive equipment will be provided by Leaps of Faith. No experience is necessary to participate in a clinic, but advance registration is required. Clinics are free of charge and are open to children, adults, and veterans with disabilities.
Leaps of Faith Disabled Skiers is in need of strong snow skiing or snow boarding volunteers for its programs; no certification in adaptive sports is required. To learn more or to register for the snow skiing clinics, contact Joel Zeisler at 203-426-0666 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
