VeronaRocks, the youth community service group, found a way to stay active this winter and do some good. They created a group called Verona Ski and turned it into a fundraiser for Stride Adaptive Sports.

Stride’s goal is to provide access to recreational activities for disabled individuals, including disabled veterans. Each Verona Ski member had a sponsor who donated towards their completed ski runs for the season. “It was a fun way to collect funds while skiing the slopes,” says Dina Lilley, the mother of one Verona Ski member.

Lilly says that, if there are fewer virus concerns next winter, Verona Ski could create ski recreation group with the township of Verona. “Kids have shown an interest in taking weekly ski trips after school with their peers to one of our local mountains,” Lilley says.
