VERMONT ADAPTIVE PARTNERSHIP
The Vermont 100 is more than a race. It’s an opportunity to give back. It’s a chance to make a difference.
The Vermont 100’s first race director Laura Farrell also founded Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports, and for over 30 years our race has been one of the largest annual fundraisers for Vermont Adaptive.
Vermont Adaptive empowers people of all abilities through year-round inclusive sports and recreational programming regardless of their ability to pay.
With nearly 400 active volunteers, plus generous partners, sponsors, and individual fundraising efforts like yours, Vermont Adaptive is able to stay at the forefront of sports and recreation for those with disabilities.
As the world’s first trail and ultra race to supports and recognize visually and mobility impaired athletes with their own division, we believe in what Vermont Adaptive does every day for its participants and we encourage your continued support.
WHERE DONATIONS GO
From basic access to advanced instruction, Vermont Adaptive makes alpine skiing, snowboarding, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, sailing, cycling, hiking, rock climbing, running, tennis, horseback riding, wellness retreats, and more available to those who may otherwise never get an opportunity.
Over the years, through hard work and dedication of our patrons, the VT100 has raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Vermont Adaptive programs.
