Crested Butte, CO – The Adaptive Sports Center of Crested Butte (Colorado), and the United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF), continue their partnership during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to assist individuals and their families who have been impacted by breast cancer. UBCF provides financial support to individuals so they can take advantage of the therapeutic recreational activities that Adaptive Sports Center offers throughout the year.

“The partnership that the Adaptive Sports Center has with the United Breast Cancer Foundation is invaluable to its participants,” said Adaptive Sports Center Marketing Manager Justin Clapp. “Our goal with this program is to make a positive difference for not just the individuals but also the entire family who see the effects of breast cancer on a daily basis”.

Funding through the UBCF is available to men and women currently managing breast cancer or within 10 years in remission.  Children living in the home who are 18 years of age or younger may also qualify for financial assistance. UBCF’s Director of Operations, Beth Reichart shared, “UBCF is proud to continue our work with Adaptive Sports Center, making critical supportive and rehabilitative services available to more people in need.”
