Five-week series supports athletes of all abilities

The Mountain Times in partnership with Vermont Adaptive and Spartan, and with the sponsorship of ten local businesses, told the story of Vermont Adaptive athletes in a five-week series reaching approximately 100,000 readers. In support of this effort, Spartan Races donated Spartan Beast and Sprint entry passes to participating businesses. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports.

The five-week series culminates this week with the Spartan Races at Killington Resort.

Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports is the largest organization in the state of Vermont to offer daily, year-round adaptive sports programs for diverse populations of people with different abilities. They provide sports and recreation opportunities to aid physical, mental and social experience promoting self-confident, independence and joy for those facing obstacles. This year, Vermont Adaptive had a goal of raising $135,000 for their programing and equipment so that they can help more adaptive athletes achieve their goals.
