Summer is Coming!

Although it might not seem like it with the last few weeks of snow, but the sun was shining today! As many of you know, summer is always a busy time for EXPAND and 2021 is no different. In addition to EXPAND programs, we are all tasked with running several summer camps. We have camp opportunities for participants ages 6-25 so feel free to reach out if you are still looking! Registration for summer programs will open Tuesday May 4th at 8:30am.

Farewell from Bri

Hi EXPAND family,
Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your world for the past 15 weeks. I will truly miss each and everyone of you. I have had so much fun and learned more than I ever thought possible. I will be returning to La Crosse, Wisconsin to work for their Parks and Recreation department this summer and will be taking my certification exam in July. I hope to find a permanent TR position in community recreation in the near future. My favorite memories at EXPAND include The Hangout, Marathon Club, Soccer, and No School Squad. I hope you all have a wonderful summer! Bri 😊 

Looking towards the future! 

EXPAND is looking forward. While we are crazy planning for summer, fall is  knocking at the door. While we are still limited by staffing, we want to do the best to provide you all with programming that will work for your schedules and lifestyle. If you would like to provie feedback, please feel free to take this 3 minutes survey. Results will help inform programming for the fall as well as advocate for usage of certain facilities.

Congrats Plungers!  

Just a quick shout our to all of our brave plungers out there. EXPAND's team raised over $11k this year for the Polar Plunge making us the top fundraising team again. Woo hoo! Our very own Abigail Tappert was the top fundraiser for the Boulder Polar Plunge while Bella Larsen was the top fundraiser for a virtual plunge! Huge thanks to plungers and donors. Go EXPAND!
May is Mental Health Month
May is Mental Health Awareness Month so we are going to use the month to talk about our own mental health. We all know that based on the last year, this is more important than ever so we wanted to create a safe way to talk about how we can take care of ourselves and our own mental health. This will be a 3 week series from 5:00 - 5:45 on Wednesdays starting May 5th.

Community Updates 

This section will contain events or opportunities from other groups in the community about things going on that might benefit the disability community. Please note that these programs are not supported by EXPAND, but we just wanted to help get the information out there! 

New Building for Ignite

Our partner, Ignite Adaptive Snowsports, is looking to the future by building a permanent new facility at Eldora Mountain Resort. For decades, Ignite has operated out of two modular units at Eldora that no longer support the needs of their growing number of students living with disabilities. You can help make this future facility a reality by donating to Ignite's Moving Mountains Grassroots Fundraiser. Your donation will help support students from EXPAND who have benefited from learning new skills in skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports.

Don't miss your chance to help build Ignite's future and help EXPAND users with a donation of any amount. Go to Ignite's fundraising website and pick a Moving Mountains fundraising team you wish to donate to!
