David traveled all the way to Vermont to participate in the “Kids of Courage” event that took place on Sunday, February 10, 2019. The mission of Adaptive Sports and the Kids of Courage event is to provide opportunities for young people with chronic illnesses to enjoy the thrill of skiing using adaptive equipment as well as the support from staff members like David.
One of the more unique activities was a post-Valentine’s Day surprise on Friday, February 15, 2019 in the Midnight Eats Lounge on Madison Avenue. Midnight Eats, which is normally a late-night dining and relaxation area, was turned into Dating Central as plenty of our students chose to participate in Speed Dating. They paid a very small fee to have the chance of meeting other college students beyond those in the program to tell each other about their interests, life backgrounds, and what they are looking for in a romantic relationship.
