Perazone Power is named in honor of our fearless Washingtonian Ski Trip Leader, Ed Perazone, who skied off a trail in a blinding whiteout in Lech, Austria and is paralyzed . After talking with people from Maine Handicapped Skiing (MHS), Ed participated in a handicapped ski program nearer his home.
The Washingtonians are mostly Mainers who started skiing together in 1962 and now travel to Europe for an annual two week trip. Many members volunteer at MHS and contribute generously each year. Our Team Captain is Sara Stockwell, a Tuesday and Thursday volunteer/advisor who also teaches kayaking in the summer. Team members are Bill Stockwell, volunteers Connie Towne, a Sugarloaf Volunteer, Dr. John Knowles and Jeremy Baker, a racing participant who was paralyzed after a fall off a two story ladder.
We beat last year's fantastic 5th place record of $8,215 and hope it just keeps pouring in so more participants can enjoy this program for free.
Gifts can still be made through June 30th, 2011
We are looking forward to Ski-a-thon day when Sara and I will guide Skyelynn, a visually impaired participant, for the forth year in a row
Please consider sponsoring us and joining us in support of this inspiring and important charity event. We hope you will forward this to all your friends and family who may also be interested. Many thanks.
Most sincerely, Bill and Sara Stockwell,
and team members Connie Towne,
Dr. John Knowles and Jeremy Baker
