BEND, Ore. -

Oregon Adaptive Sports is pleased to announce the awarding of a $5,000 grant to purchase adaptive hand-cycles from The Roundhouse Foundation.

The funds will be used to support the adaptive cycling program being developed as part of the expansion of OAS programs from seasonal to year round.

OAS Executive Director, Christine Brousseau, says “we are grateful to The Roundhouse Foundation and their commitment to our life-changing programs.  We are beyond thrilled to be able to start building an adaptive bicycle fleet to better serve the needs of our participants!”

ABOUT OAS: Oregon Adaptive Sports has been breaking barriers in Central Oregon since 1996, providing disabled people and their families’ opportunities for outdoor recreation. Our goal is to nurture the human spirit and foster self-confidence and independence. We currently offer instructional programs in alpine and Nordic skiing and snowboarding, at Hoodoo and Mt. Bachelor ski resorts as well as summer recreation opportunities throughout Central Oregon. To prevent cost from being a barrier to participation, we rely on the support of hundreds of volunteers, businesses, donors and sponsors.
