Make Their Day camper Mike Shaw update

Make Their Day camper Mike Shaw update When we ran our Make Their Day event we weren't sure who would apply. Ashlin Tipper sent a nomination in for Mike Shaw. He was a perfect candidate.

Even with amazing friends and family, schedules do not always align. When a program such as the Revelstoke Adaptive Sports Program comes along it creates opportunity to become more independent. Those looking to connect or reconnect with the mountains, an incredibly powerful place, are now a little more able. We are very excited to have been a part of the official launch on Saturday.
