Pete has been blessed to travel with Team Albany to the Winter Sports Clinic 3 times and to the Wheelchair Games 3 times as well as attending the New England Winter and Summer Clinics each year. But as Pete's MS has progressed he can no longer travel alone and he requires a caregiver to travel with him to assist him with the tasks of daily living and to ensure his safety through the trip. The caregiver's expenses are NOT paid through the money raised for the veterans. In 2015 a generous donor paid for Pete's wife to go with him to Snowmass so that he could still attend. The cost for travel and hotel expenses each of these national events is around $1[phone redacted].
In 2016 Pete would like to attend the Winter Sports Clinic in Snowmass and the Wheelchair Games in Salt Lake City and we are asking for help in paying for a caregiver for him for these events.
We thank you in advance for any amount you can donate. The chance for him to be out of his wheelchair and flying down a mountain is lifechanging for him and something he looks forward to all year. The event is aptly called Miracle on a Mountainside.
