Achieve Tahoe is a nonprofit that builds health, confidence and independence through recreational sports for children and adults with disabilities. The organization serves over 500 people a year through one-on-one snowsports lessons, waterskiing, paddle sports and more. This is my second year of volunteering for them and it truly has been an honor and privilege to work with Achieve Tahoe's highly trained instructors. Our specialized adaptive equipment allow the organization to serve just about anyone with any disability. Achieve Tahoe participants and family members often say that their experience with Achieve Tahoe goes on to affect other areas of their life, and mine, such as gaining confidence to try other sports, becoming more social, and breaking down perceived barriers showing them that they can do things they perhaps never thought they could before.

"My son, who has Spina Bifida, started in this program 6 years ago. The instructors and staff are encouraging and fun, yet challenge him to go beyond his perceived limits. He's now independent on his mono-ski but keeps up with his lessons as he loves the program and learns something new every time. This is an amazing life changing program!"
