As of today we have acquired 44% of our total goal of 200 tickets by October 4th.
Creating a sport of inclusion is the goal of the CXC Adaptive Program. Each year, CXC makes a step forward in providing youth with physical disabilities and visual impairments with opportunities to participate and compete alongside everyone else. Without the support from fundraisers such as the Eriksen Bike Drawing, achieving this goal would not be a possibility.
Brenden Ojibway, an adaptive athlete and CXC Adaptive Program participant, has seen the results and benefits of participating in an adaptive program. Ojibway is an inspiration to many and has remained persistent in chasing his dreams.
Brenden has been with the CXC Adaptive Program for three years. He is a multi-sport athlete who competed at the 2016 Adaptive Sports Junior National Championships USA for Track and Field, placing second in discus throw and third in both shot put and javelin throw.
During the winter, Brenden skis and competes in the Wisconsin State High School Nordic Championships as well as Junior National Qualifiers.
“These past three years, CXC and the coaching staff have provided me with equipment, coaching expertise and racing opportunities.” Said Brenden. “Not to mention the encouragement they give me to challenge myself everyday with new goals both on and off the skis. I enjoy skiing and the CXC Adaptive Program offers me the benefit of a great workout and competitions!”
