A life changing program

Simply put, Maine Handicapped Skiing (MHS) has changed my life and the lives of countless others. After losing my leg in 2001 I was unsure what my athletic ability would be, and what life would be like as an amputee.  This year I turned 50 years old and headed out to Telluride, Colorado for a week-long ski trip with friends, where I skied some of the most challenging terrain of my life.  None of this would have been possible without the Maine Handicapped Skiing Program and the support of my loving wife, Tina.

For the past few years I have been able to share my enthusiasm for skiing as both a volunteer instructor, as well as a coach for the adaptive race team where I get to work with Paralympic hopefuls such as Griffin LaMarre (pictured left). More than anything, this program helps people realize that you are only limited by what you believe is possible. Whether a participant is a returning veteran from Iraq or Afghanistan, a child who has lost a limb to cancer, a stroke survivor, or accident victim, MHS helps people re-define who they are and what they are capable of accomplishing, both on --  and even more importantly -- off the slopes.

In Memory of "Fitzy"....

This year our fundraising team has the goal of becoming the top fundraiser in the Ski-a-thon -- ahead of Les Otten, candidate for Maine Governor,  who traditionally has this honor.  We are dedicating our efforts in memory of our friend "Fitzy" who tragically died at Sunday River doing what he loved most -- skiing and helping others realize their dreams.  Ryan Fitzpatrick was the epitome of what MHS participants, volunteers and coaches represent.   We miss him and are making an extra effort to raise the funds that will help others realize their dreams in his place. 

We hope you will join us.
