Adaptive Sports Center

An Interview with Erin English, marketing and communications director, Adaptive Sports Center
April 2, 2009

 Adaptive Sports Center was founded in 1987 when President and Mrs. Carter joined a group of local residents to form the Physically Challenged Ski Program of Crested Butte and has since evolved into the year-round, nationally recognized Adaptive Sports Center.

With the support of volunteers, dedicated instructors, staff and the local community, the ASC has thrived and grown from providing 30 alpine ski lessons during its first winter to becoming one of the premiere outdoor adaptive recreation programs in the world. The ASC now provides more than 3,600 lessons to 500-plus participants through a full range of winter and summer outdoor adventure activities.   

Here, we talk with Marketing and Communications Director Erin English about the organization and its fundraising strategies and challenges.
