The Sled Hockey Foundation (SHF) continues its growth into other adaptive sports through Adam Page’s inspiration and determination. Adam has already founded the Buffalo Bandits Wheelchair Lacrosse team, starting the team’s 3rd season this week. Yet, Adam and the SHF are not done seeking new opportunities to change people’s lives.
At the end of March, Adam enjoyed the great opportunity to take part in the USA Para-Alpine Skiing National competition in Winter Park, Colorado. This was his first chance to participate on such a high level of ski racing. Adam competed with an adaptive skiing program out of Utah called the National Ability Center (NAC).
Competing against adaptive skiers from all over the World, including the best from the USA and Canada, Adam participated in both the Giant Slalom and Slalom events over the four day’s at Winter Park.
“I had an amazing experience - it was challenging but so much fun to see where I stand. The NAC group was also amazing. I learned so much in just a short few days about ski-racing from the coaches and my team members,” Adam stated, adding, “I can’t wait to see what the future holds in this sport and look forward to training more and getting into more races.”
The SHF will be re-branding in the coming months to become Greater Buffalo Adaptive Sports with continued focus on sled hockey, while adding wheelchair lacrosse, adaptive skiing, watersports, adaptive curling, and other opportunities for people with disabilities to pursue the benefits of sports and recreation.
