25 Veterans with Disabilities and their Families Enjoy Watersports at Burden Lake in July

Beautiful summer weather made for an amazing weekend of waterksiing, wakeboarding, tubing, kayaking and canoeing at the Adaptive Sports Foundation’s Burden Lake Water Sports Festival.

Who is having more fun? Father or daughter?
Feeling safe allows this veteran to try something new.

ASF teamed up with the Wounded Warrior Project and DSUSA to host this annual event. 70 volunteers and the Burden Lake community worked together with ASF staff members to provide recreation for veterans with disabilites and their familes. All volunteers attended a day of training prior to the event to familiarize themselves with the adaptive equipment used to help injured troops learn to ski.

This year we also had a climbing wall, courtesy of the U.S. Army, yoga, and “Q.T.Pie – The Clown” to entertain the children. This weekend provides an opportunity for families to relax and participate in sports on a beautiful lake in upstate New York.
