ADAPTIVE SKI SCHOLARSHIPS
Our founder, Olympic ski racer Jimmie Heuga, believed in the importance of focusing on what you “can do.” In Jimmie’s spirit, we offer opportunities for Adaptive Ski Scholarships to people living with MS.
Can Do MS is providing scholarships for adaptive ski lessons facilitated by New England Disabled Sports, Vail Adaptive Program, and Achieve Tahoe. These adaptive ski lessons take place during the SKI for MS event series, a community fundraiser bringing people together at mountains across the country. Click here to learn more about SKI for MS!
