Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country
Partners in Possibilities!
Adaptive Sports Partners provides over 20 different sport, recreation and wellness activities for people of all ages and any ability. Your support helps assure that these essential life enriching programs endure.
If you or a member of your family has a disability, or if you work with a group of individuals with disabilities, you will find that Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country has much to offer.
From providing direct support to our participants for sport and recreation activities to a single commitment as a “Sherpa” on a hike or working on an “office project,” volunteering is both rewarding and fun.
Sunrise Ascent on Mt. Washington
This unique event is a fundraiser for Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC). Before sunrise, on Sunday, August 6th, athletes and teams ascend the Mount Washington Auto Road, determined to reach the 6,288-foot summit of Mount Washington. Each team includes an adaptive athlete and a team of “mules” who help an athlete needing assistance, or accompany an independent athlete as he or she climbs the 7.6 miles to the summit. Together the teams are inspired by the beauty of the sunrise, the majesty of the Presidential Range and the determination shared amongst them.
