“When I participate in DREAM activities I feel like a normal person without a disability. Being pulled behind the boat to water ski was exciting for me because I usually just get to watch my cousins do it. DREAM always lets me work at my own pace, yet pushes me to better myself in all their activities. Thank you DREAM for helping me see that a wheelchair does not need to slow me down.”
I am writing to say thanks to you for all the thought and energy you put into making it possible for me to ski again today. It was a beautiful bluebird day with marvelous views, the pine trees smelled wonderful, the feel of speed on Moementum was exhilarating, and moving through nature again brought back great memories! Despite everyone trying their best to find a solution for my floppy neck, I still consider the day a success! It has been interesting for me to realize that although the most obvious deficits of my illness are hand weakness and difficulty walking, the most difficult for me at this time are neck weakness and shoulder girdle weakness.
I am blessed to know you all and I always admire watching your program help people and make them feel valued both on the slopes and in the lodge!
Activities will include: Water skiing, sit water skiing, wake boarding, knee boarding,
