    Last July we celebrated the grand opening a one-of-a-kind building, The Adaptive Sports Center’s Kelsey Wright Building in Crested Butte, CO.  Check out the video tour below to see ASC show off their cutting-edge facility which hosts programming and specialized equipment fitting for adaptive sports activities ranging from skiing and snowboarding in the winter to mountain biking and rock climbing in the summer. The building was named in honor of one of the program’s earliest participants, Kelsey Wright, an avid skier who fought mitochondrial disease.

    Executive Director, Chris Hensley stated, “Kelsey inspired all of us to do our best and help others live their lives to the fullest.  The building that RTA created will keep Kelsey’s spirit alive by helping us to do just that.” Chris Read, Program Director of the Adaptive Sports Center noted the building is “the best piece of equipment we have ever had.” The facility now serves nearly 10,000 participants a year.

    Kelsey’s family noted, “We are thrilled with the great success of the Kelsey Wright Building. It took an army of caring and dedicated people to achieve such a dream…We know that Kelsey would have been so pleased to see others have this new adventure with the Adaptive Sports Center.”               

    RTA has been honored to be a part of this amazing mission. Congratulation on your one-year anniversary, Adaptive Sports Center!

    RTA celebrated with staff and supporters of the Adaptive Sports Center (ASC) and residents of Crested Butte for the ribbon-cutting of the ASC’s new Kelsey Wright Building. ASC is a world-class program that has been helping individuals with varying abilities explore, enjoy, and conquer outdoor activities for more than 30 years. It operates year-round, with activities ranging from biking and skiing to ice climbing and kayaking. The new Kelsey Wright building will effectively double the square footage of ASC’s original facility and significantly increase the amount of guests the ASC will be able to host on site. Congratulations ASC!
