Project Description

Country: USA

Location: McCall (Payette Lakes)

Total Budget: $11,458

Area of Focus: Maternal and child health

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: Providing adaptive ski equipment to expand winter access to adults and children with physical or cognitive disabilities in McCall and surrounding counties.

Over the past few years, the AWeSOMe! program has expanded with a broader range of students with disabilities. To support this demand the number one need is to purchase new equipment. They currently have dated, used equipment that limits the instructors abilities to efficiently instruct a range of individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities.

The funds will be used for purchasing a DYNAMIQUE BI SKI and a MONIQUE-1 MONO SKI which will allow the program to expand the adaptive winter accessibility to more students. Both skis provide the versatility needed for a wide range of students with physical and/or cognitive diagnoses. The advantage to purchasing the two together is we can share common parts between the two skis allowing them to serve students of all ages, and sizes without having to purchase two sets of Child, Junior, and adult seats/footrest. Both skis create independence and allow the individual to experience the joys of skiing. Virtually any student with a diminished capacity for balance, strength, cognitive understanding, or even psychological fear may possibly benefit from a sit-ski.

The skis will be purchased before the start of the 2019/2020 ski season.

Last season, AWeSOMe! instructed 120 students, both children and adults. From January to mid March, a 10-week lesson program is offered every Saturday. Lessons by appointment during the week. All instructors are volunteer. Several Rotarians and community members are involved in both the instruction and organization of the program.
