This unique event is a fundraiser for Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC). Before sunrise on Sunday, August 5th, teams ascend the Mount Washington Auto Road determined to reach the 6,288-foot summit of Mount Washington. Each team includes an adaptive athlete and “mules” who help an athlete needing assistance or accompany an independent athlete as he or she climbs the 7.6 miles to the summit. Together the teams are inspired by the beauty of the sunrise, the majesty of the Presidential Range, and the determination shared among them.
This event seeks to raise over $62,880 to help fund the operating budget of ASPNC. Through our mission fulfillment, thousands of athletes have been encouraged to maximize their abilities. Your contribution will help change and enrich the lives of people of all abilities.
