Every adventure begins with two simple words: Let’s Go!
Episode 10: Reclaiming Adventure
ADAPTIVE SPORTS CENTER
When faced with a disability, possibilities can feel limited and life becomes confined. Adaptive Sports Center opens the door to outdoor adventuring, giving participants self-confidence, optimism and independence that translate to every part of their daily lives.
In this episode, we join some amazing individuals at different stages in their journey with Adaptive Sports Center intensive programs. From a 79-year old adventurer learning to hike again to a biker who’s been shredding the trails for twenty years on his custom adaptive mountain bike, they show us what it means to reclaim freedom.
“One of the coolest things is to see someone identify not as a person with a disability
but as a biker, climber or skier.”
– Chris Read, ASC Program Director
We’re proud to present Adaptive Sports Center with a grant through our Parks for All program. It’s just part of the $2.5 million we’ve awarded so far.

How do you inspire women to join the skateboarding community while combating an obvious lack of opportunities? Meet Exposure Skate, an organization formed by female pro skateboarders to empower women, trans and nonbinary individuals through the shared joy of skateboarding.
In this episode, we join Skate Rising – the inclusive youth program of Exposure Skate – as they encourage girls from 4 to 18 to build their skate (and life) skills. In fact, we rolled along with one young skateboarder as she visits a skate park for the first time and learns what it takes to rise to any challenge.
“We’ve all had failures, and that’s part of how we learn. Skateboarding is an inclusive space. The thing that binds us together is we understand what it’s like to fall down and get back up.”
– Calli Kelsay, Founder, Skate Rising
