What drew me to World T.E.A.M.,
first as a participant, was the people.
I have seen individuals from around
the country and the world, with diverse
backgrounds and skill levels, come
together as a team to accomplish
incredible goals. Each of these programs has, at
its core, a focus on inclusivity that
enables us to showcase how The
Exceptional Athlete Matters. You
matter. They matter. We all matter.
And that is the gift of World T.E.A.M.
Each of the stakeholders of World
T.E.A.M. – sponsors, participants, board
members, volunteers, and staff – play
a vital role in this success. Now, as
President and CEO, I am honored
to be able to lead this incredible
organization as we expand our
outreach and share our mission.
Empower. Enable. Engage.
This year, we grew. Our Military Initiative,
through the Face of America programs,
raised more funds than ever. Our
Adventure T.E.A.M. Challenge Colorado,
the staple of our Adventure Initiative,
has become the premier inclusive
adaptive adventure program.
Our goal in 2019 is to empower even
more lives, and we hope you join us in
this challenge. Share our story. Share
It is truly inspiring to see how all of our
supporters have an impact on each
other and develop relationships that
are meaningful. This is what keeps
us motivated to continue creating the
opportunities that expose people to the
strengths and diversity of our participants.
Thank you for your support in my first
full year leading this organization.
Thank you for contributing to the change
we are able to bring to the communities
around us. Thank you for being a
member of our T.E.A.M.
