Starting our organization, Adaptive Action Sports. We started in 2005 to get youth, young adults, and wounded vets with permanent physical disabilities involved in action sports. We created camps and programs and trainings. We made this pipeline so somebody who just lost their leg, and is in a hospital bed not knowing if they’ll ever snowboard again, can relearn the sport with the right tools. And if they want to take it to a high competitive level, we've got elite snowboard coaches, and an elite snowboard team that can help them do that. And then of course, from that point forward, they can go through trials and make it to the Paralympic Games.
For me the most compelling thing is being able to give back, and being able to affect somebody's life in a positive way. It's one thing to win a medal, but if you keep it to yourself there's really no joy around it. It's just kind of another thing sitting on your shelf. But being able to share that medal and also be able to help other people achieve that goal as well, I think is the most fulfilling thing that I've been able to do.
