Review for Forever Young Foundation, Mesa, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our foundation, Wasatch Adaptive Sports, provides therapeutic recreational activities to children and adults with special needs. The Forever Young Foundation has been funding our foundation for the past 25 years. 95% of all our operating costs for the year are raised at the Steve Young Ski Classic. Without the support of the Forever Young Foundation we would not be able to operate. Most all of our participants come from Primary Children's Medical Center, Shriners Hospitals for Children, University of Utah Health Care and the VA Medical Center in Utah. None have any funding to participate; we provide full scholarships from the money raised at the Steve Young Ski Classic. Not only does the Forever Young Foundartion provide funding for our foundation, they provide year-round support in management training and team building for non-profits through the Arbinger Institute and monthly follow-up conference calls. The Forever Young Foundation run by Steve, Barb, Sterling, Michelle and Stephanie is an unbelievable passionate foundation.
