for New England Regional Ski for Light
New England Regional Ski for Light is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1977 to promote the physical fitness of visually-impaired adults. It is our mission to sponsor physically demanding sports. In the winter, we cross country ski and snowshoe; in the summer, we hike, canoe, and tandem bicycle. People who are visually impaired or blind and those who are sighted join together in a unique one-on-one partnership to learn from each other in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere of camaraderie.  We are an all-volunteer organization that relies on donations.

Our group has grown to the point where carpooling is not enough. Last year we received a one-time grant to rent vans and it made SUCH a difference in our trips. We are looking to raise funds so we can again rent  a pair of 12-passenger vans to get our group to the mountains!

Had our planning meeting tonight, set the dates for our trips this winter: January 8-10 in New Hampshire and March 11-14 in Vermont. Just a few months away. So many members are talking about it already and looking forward to going. Hope we can get the vans to get them all there! Here are some photos from our trip last year.

I love captaining our tandem with visually impaired stokers. Great fun for both of us.
