Today, the NSCD is one of the largest outdoor therapeutic recreation agencies in the world. Each year, thousands of children and adults with disabilities take to the ski slopes, mountain trails and playing fields to learn more about sports and themselves. With specially trained staff and its own adaptive equipment lab, the NSCD teaches a variety of winter and summer sports and activities to individuals with almost any physical, cognitive, emotional, or behavioral diagnosis.

The National Sports Center for the Disabled announced this week that it raised $94,000 at its annual Exceeding Boundaries breakfast held June 6 at Mile High Stadium in Denver.

The event recognizes people and organizations in the community that make a difference in adaptive and therapeutic sports and recreation while also serving an important fundraiser for the NSCD.

“We could not provide services to over 3,500 participants each year without community partnerships and involvement,” said Kimberle Easton, president and CEO of the NSCD. “The funds raised will support the NSCD’s year-round programs benefiting the lives of children and adults with any physical or cognitive disability.”

The NSCD is recognized around the world as a premier therapeutic recreation organization providing leadership and expertise in adaptive sports. Each year more than 3,500 children and adults with disabilities participate in year-round sports from recreational programs to competitive training through the NSCD. This year the NSCD sent 12 athletes to South Korea to compete in the Winter Paralympics.
