Amputee Ski Trip Send-Off Party

Date/Time: February 12, 2018, 9:30 AM

Since 1981, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has hosted an Annual Amputee Ski Trip for patients. Fourteen teenage patients, as well as medical staff and chaperones, spend a week at the National Sports Center for the Disabled, in Winter Park, Colorado. 

In a continuing effort to improve the lives of patients, Scottish Rite Hospital recognized that snow skiing is well suited for amputees, and with special equipment, they quickly become competitive and often excel at the sport. 

Skiing at the renowned National Sports Center for the Disabled creates a focus for the trip, but the personal growth and challenges the teens overcome are often more life-changing than the actual accomplishment of skiing. The goal of the trip is to foster a sense of self-confidence, discovery and independence for these teens.
