Four Winds combined day trip with ABSF on Saturday February 22, 2020 at Alpine Valley Ski Resort in Wisconsin
The American Blind Skiing Foundation (ABSF) a group that you all know that I am very involved with is excited to announce that thanks to one of our VI Skiers Richard Thomsen, there was a segment about ABSF on ABC 7 Eyewitness News on Sunday morning March 1st at 8:41 AM
An ABC 7 reporter came out and spent the day with us at Alpine Valley learning what skiing with ABSF was all about. He shot video and interviewed several of our skiers and guides and they are featured in the segment.
They are doing several versions of the ABSF Story…
--A shorter version with voice over from anchor Hosea Sanders which aired Sunday, March 1st as a part of a series called ‘Celebrating Abilities.’
-- Here is a link to the "online story" version: https://abc7chicago.com/hobbies/visually-impaired-skiers-hit-the-slopes-with-american-blind-skiing-foundation/5972080/.
--ANOTHER version of the story using some footage that ABSF shot and shared with them will be used in a National ABC series, Locally. They will be sending us a link to that as soon they have it.
So check it out and you will see why I am so passionate about this organization!!!
