Frequently Asked Questions

The biggest question at this point probably involves our plan to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency. At this time, we want to assure you that the health, wellbeing and safety of everyone is at the very top of ASPNC's priorities. While we hope to proceed with the Sunrise Ascent as usual (with plans to increase distancing and hygiene at the base camp, rest stops and summit), it is likely we will have to make further changes for the safety of everyone. We have developed a solid contingency plan that aims to provide athletes and mules with an opportunity to get outside, rally support for adaptive sports, make it to the summit, and still share their experience with the incredible community that ASPNC and the Sunrise Ascent create. We will release more details as soon as we are able, but we are currently waiting for the latest guidance as we closely watch the country reopen and we will choose our best path forward with health and safety as the top priority. However, right now, what we can all do is start rallying support to hit our fundraising goals, knowing that our efforts will ensure that people with disabilities will always have life-enriching opportunities for sport, recreation and wellness, even as we define a new normal.
