Ski For Light (September 2013)

Ski For Light

Saturday, September 21, at 5:00 p.m.
Norway House (directions)

Ski for Light, Inc. is an all-volunteer, non-profit, organization founded in 1975. The mission of the organization is to teach blind, visually- and mobility-impaired adults the sport of classic cross-country skiing, to give participants who have already mastered the basics the chance to improve their skills and endurance, and to enable participants to just have fun on the snow.

There will be four people giving the presentation: Bonnie O'Day and Bob Hartt, two long-time visually-impaired participants and Marita and Lars Johanson, two recently-involved instructor guides.  They will give an overview and history of the program and relate their individual experiences with the Ski for Light program.
