Challenge Mountain Equine Therapy

How Your Gift Helps

Although there are many programs throughout the United States that provide opportunities for the disabled population, Challenge Mountain is unique in many ways. Programs are offered exclusively to individuals living with disabilities and their families. A family-first approach allows families to recreate together which strengthens bonds.

Each year, Challenge Mountain connects over 1,800 children, youth, and adults with special needs to life-enhancing recreational opportunities. Participants gain personal fulfillment through a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of acceptance that translates positively into their everyday lives. Programs are not just about having fun on a boat ride, climbing a ropes course, or skiing down a hill. These experiences create positive individual and group development, while building social and character skills and transforming participants’ views of themselves and their abilities.

Removing the Financial Burden

With the financial and life challenges associated with a disability, we believe that money should not be a barrier to experiencing life. Thanks to the generous support of individual donors, the community, grants from private corporations and foundations, and income generated through the Challenge Mountain resale store, Challenge Mountain programs are offered at little or no cost to participants and their families.
