Born and raised in Wyoming, Gary took up skiing in high school. Part of the Teton Adaptive Team Gary fell in love with the sport, and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Learning to ski at JHMR has prepared Gary to represent Wyoming this winter at the World Winter Games, a huge honor for Gary. The Special Olympics global competition is taking place March 14 -25th, 2017 throughout Austria, and Gary will be training at JHMR, in the gym and at the National Winter Games in Vermont this December.
"I’m going to the world games in Austria! I can’t believe it, I qualified… Tom the WORLD GAMES!"
We're rooting for Gary, and excited to see him represent in the Super G, Giant Slalom and Slalom competitions. To donate to Gary's journey, check out his First Giving Page:
