It's that time of year again when I reach out to all of you to ask if you might consider donating to my MHS (Maine Handicapped Skiing) Ski-a-thon Team.
There are few things in life that bring us pure JOY. Teaching others the sport that I LOVE is one of those things for me. Please help me continue with my passion by making a generous contribution to my team.
If it was truly just teaching them to ski I would not be as passionate. What I see every time I volunteer with students/veterans is a renewed zest for life. I see individuals that can finally move gracefully without having to struggle with gravity. I see a desire to take on new challenges. I see students acknowledged based on their ability to ski and not based on their disability.
I see a community where every challenge is met with possibilities. I see people giving generously without regard for personal acknowledgement.
I have been volunteering for 22 years and it's still just as exciting to me as my first year.
Thank you for taking the time and making a donation,
P.S. Thanks again. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to our fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
