Amputee Ski Trip Spotlight: Ryanne, age 14 of Mineola
The specialized care that she has received at Scottish Rite Hospital has inspired her to want to be a physical therapist when she grows up. This will be Ryanne’s second time on the Amputee Ski Trip and she is excited to get back to snowboarding and see the friends that she made last year.
About the Annual Amputee Ski Trip
February 2018 will mark the 37th 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.
