Join DREAM Adaptive Recreation at the 2nd Annual Paddle Fest brought to you by Sportsman Ski Haus. This is a family friendly event on Flathead Lake at Wayfarers State Park. DREAM will have our On-It Adaptive Paddle Boards out on the water for the general public to try out. On-It created a paddle board that accommodates wheelchairs for individuals who are paraplegic, amputees or with related disabilities. Their unique system is designed with an all-terrain surf chair, a secure locking mechanism and a custom ramp that allows paddlers to wheel independently onto the board straight from land. Our system is stabilized with outriggers on either side providing superior stability for the rider. This event is over two days with paddle boards representative from Montana as well as activities and races for all levels and all ages. For more information please call us at 406-862-1817.

Progression of one of our Athletes
Josie moved to Whitefish, Montana a few years ago and has a deep love for trying new things. Her disabilities include Neuromuscular, Orthopedic and Vision Impairment, however this never slowed her down. Josie is an amazing lady with a great attitude on life. Her father, Jesse, volunteered with our program for the first time this winter. Her family had high hopes of her progressing with Adaptive Equipment such as a slider, but she showed her true strength and by the end of the season she was skiing completely on her own. Josie is the perfect example of what DREAM strives for with each of our athletes, “Building Confidence and Encouraging Independence, One Activity at a Time.” This video was designed as a progression video which shows her at the beginning of the Ski Season and ending with her competition in the Special Olympics Winter Games at Whitefish Mountain Resort.
Spring Fling Garden Party 2016
In case you missed our Annual Spring Fundraiser, this years theme was a Garden Party at the Grouse Mountain Lodge in Whitefish, Montana on March 19th, 2016. This video is of the slideshow that DREAM created to be played during the event. It is the most current photos we have from our Athletes and Volunteers for 2016. Our Garden Party was a huge success and we are so grateful to have the support of our community behind us. Enjoy the show.
