The 2020 VIRTUAL Sunrise Ascent on Mount Washington!
2020 Goals: $200,000 and 6,288 miles!

ASPNC is bringing you a new way to join the 11th annual Sunrise Ascent this year! The mission of Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country is to enrich the quality of life for people with disabilities through year-round sport, recreation, and wellness. We’ve adapted this years SAMW to promote that mission, creating an event that engages the ASPNC community and promotes everyone’s health, well-being, and safety, while continuing to raise funds that keep our adaptive programming running. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to host our event as usual, but we invite everyone to join us in our virtual event!

In lieu of our traditional ascent up Mount Washington, athletes and mules will participate in remote activities during the entire month of July. Adaptive Athletes and Mules will log their miles and time doing any activity to contribute to their team totals. To help motivate teams to keep active, there will be weekly contests and raffle prizes throughout July. 

On August 2nd teams will meet at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road for a car parade celebration! Following social distancing guidelines, a to-go brunch will be provided for each car, as well as some activities to enjoy on the drive up. Stay tuned for some other fun Mount Washington activities to be announced.

2020 Sunrise Ascent on Mount Washington

Sunrise Ascent on Mt. Washington is celebrating its 11th year! Beginning with just one team (Team Martin) hiking the auto road in 2009, this event now draws more than 300 participants from eight states and accounts for one-third of ASPNC’s overall budget.

Sunrise Ascent of Mt. Washington is a unique fundraising event to benefit Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life for people living with disabilities by providing opportunities for year-round sports, recreation, and wellness.

Before sunrise on Sunday, August 2nd, teams will begin their arduous ascent via the Mt. Washington Auto Road, determined to reach the 6,288-foot summit of Mt. Washington. Each team includes an adaptive athlete and “mules” who help the athlete any way necessary as he or she climbs the 7.6 miles to the summit. Together, the teams must pull together and push through the grueling ascent to overcome this great challenge. In the end, the teams form a bond that is made strong by the shared experience, reinforced further by the beauty of the sunrise and the majesty of the Presidential Range.
