Wintergreen Adaptive Sports News & Events
Thanks to the generosity of our friends at the Donovan Foundation, Wintergreen Adaptive Sports has begun its fall Donovan Matching Gift Fundraising Campaign. For every two dollars we raise through October, the Donovan Foundation will match it with an additional dollar. Please consider giving to WAS in any amount and at any time, but do consider a gift during this very important fundraising campaign.

Our summer paddling program is happening now! On August 9 and August 10, our paddling staff and volunteers hosted another Wounded Warriors Weekend, training on Lake Monacan on Saturday the 9th and paddling the beautiful James River (from Pony Pasture to Reedy Creek) on Sunday the 10th. Thanks to all who made this spectacular weekend possible. To join us on one of our next outings, click on the link above.
