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.
Volunteer or Intern
From providing direct support to our participants for sport, recreation, or wellness activities to a single commitment as a “Sherpa” on a hike or working on an “office project,” volunteering or interning 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 5th, 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 “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 among them.
