This past fall, the Skirack crew built up a handcycle for the Kelly Brush Foundation and helped them surprise a grant recipient at her door Publisher’s Clearing House-style. Check out the video and story from the Kelly Brush Foundation blog below.

About Kelly Brush Foundation:
The Kelly Brush Foundation has two passions: helping people thrive by incorporating sports and recreation into their lifestyle and preventing injuries in the sport of ski racing.
These became Kelly’s passions after she sustained a spinal cord injury in 2006 while competing in an NCAA alpine ski race, leaving her paralyzed from the chest down. Always an athlete, getting back to sports after her injury allowed Kelly to simply feel like herself again. She and her family also recognized the preventable nature of her injury and committed to the prevention of similar injuries in the sport of ski racing.
The Kelly Brush Foundation was formed to make these passions its mission. We provide adaptive sports equipment directly to people living with paralysis and support ski clubs in their safety efforts.
We have helped hundreds of individuals discover the benefits of sport and recreation in 44 states and helped protect thousands of youth racers in nearly every US state with alpine racing programs.
