Ability Challenge Fundraiser
THANK YOU to everyone that fundraised, donated and participated in the 2019 Ability Challenge! Thanks to you, we raised over $230,000 to support Achieve Tahoe adaptive sports programs.
Help raise funds and awareness to provide health, confidence and independence to children and adults with disabilities by joining over a hundred others for Achieve Tahoe's 2019 Ability Challenge!
The Ability Challenge is a fun peer-to-peer fundraiser that runs through March 30th, 2019. The challenge includes incentive prizes throughout the fundraising campaign for top fundraisers. Raise $250 or more to attend the Ability Challenge celebration on March 30th at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort- a fun day of games, inclusivity, and community. The Ability Challenge celebration includes a lift ticket, on-hill activities and challenges (costumes encouraged!), catered lunch, and entry to win great prizes like a California Gold Pass, and more!
