Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities is happening on September, 7th. Over the past sixteen years, the event has helped local charities raise nearly $91 million and has touched the lives of thousands. Over the years, those dollars have helped house homeless pets, feed the hungry, teach our children and protect Jackson’s natural beauty.
Before Old Bill’s Fun Run we wanted to highlight a few of the non-profits that make a huge impact in our community.
Teton Adaptive Sports (TAS) was incorporated as a 501c3 organization as a chapter of the national organization Disabled Sports/USA in2005. TAS was originally founded as a
support organization for the Adaptive Ski Program at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort through the Jackson Hole Mountain Sports School which has operated since 1984.
TAS supports JHMSS Adaptive with adaptive ski equipment, instructor training support, and most importantly scholarships for adaptive skiers of all ages and abilities. TAS partners with JHMR to provide a “ski buddy” format for groups from Teton County School Dist Special Ed., C-V State School, and Community Entry Services (CES). TAS also co-sponsors the Adaptive Steep and Deep Camp, which involves Wounded Warriors.
