Your support makes the difference.
Oregon Adaptive Sports is working to remove the barriers to the outdoors for individuals with disabilities.
Approximately 1 in 5 Americans live with a disability and face numerous barriers to the outdoors. Adaptive sports equipment is prohibitively expensive for most, accessible transportation does not reach trailheads or open spaces, hours of training are required to facilitate safe and effective programs, and individuals with disabilities are vastly underrepresented in the decision making processes in the outdoor industry.
Your charitable gift helps OAS dismantle these barriers.
Throughout 2020, OAS continued to directly serve individuals throughout a global pandemic, while also pivoting to creating invaluable online resources. OAS is now entering its 25th year of adaptive skiing programs at Hoodoo and Mt Bachelor. We invite you to invest in our work and help create and sustain access to the outdoors for individuals with disabilities.
