News, events, and musings from the Pilgrim’s Inn
So what do you do in the off season....?
Our passion is fueled by the opportunity to work with disabled children, adults and veterans through the Maine Handicapped Ski Program. As an amputee, Tony started as a participant in this program several years ago. He now works as a volunteer, as well as a coach to the adaptive race team, working with racers of all ages, including some Paralympic hopefuls. Tina assists with fundraising and helps out wherever she can, while continuing the marketing, reservation and other business activities that continue for the inn year-round.
This year is the 25th anniversary of this only free adaptive ski program in the country, and we are working on being the top fundraising team for the annual Ski-a-thon, which raises the majority of operating revenue for the year. If you would like to contribute to this fundraising event please go to Tony's Fundraising Page, or to learn more about this remarkable program please visit Maine Handicapped Skiing

The "Maine Handicapped Ski Program" is inspiring, even on paper. Making them enjoy life and give them an opportunity to experience these things, fulfilling their desires and making a move to make them feel more comfortable socializing with other people. This is what I'd want to do in off season, surely.
