Amputee Ski Trip Spotlight: Drew, age 16 of Terrell

Drew, age 16 of Terrell, has been a patient at Scottish Rite Hospital since he was five years old. He had his right foot amputated and wears a prosthesis on that leg. Drew loves playing football and baseball. When he grows up, he wants to use his inclination for math and science to help people by becoming a pharmacist. He has skied once before in Keystone, Colorado, and is excited to hit the slopes in Winter Park.

About the Annual Amputee Ski Trip

February 2017 will mark the 36th anniversary of the annual Amputee Ski Trip, held each year at the National Sports Center for the Disabled in Winter Park, Colorado. Fourteen teenage patients with limb differences receive practical recreational therapy, while also having the opportunity to grow, build confidence and bond with others similar to them.
