Achieve Tahoe with Haakon Lang-Ree

Achieve Tahoe with Haakon Lang-Ree

Today, I highlight an incredible organization that has changed the life for our daughter, Teal, and I know for so many other families in the California area.  

Achieve Tahoe provides Skiing and Snowboarding during the winter months and Archery, Climbing, Equestrian, Hiking, Kayaking, Paddle boarding, Sailing, Waterskiing and some Sea-Doo rides on special water sports day in Lake Tahoe, California.  

Achieve Tahoe’s mission is to “Build Health, Confidence, and Independence” with people with disabilities through outdoor recreation and sports.  

Haakon defines “Adaptive Sports” and says, after the 1st interaction the focus for Achieve, and all of the instructors, is on the abilities of the participant, what they can do, and what they want to do.  He said, “A lot of times, I forget what people’s disabilities are  because that’s not really what their story is.” 

I hope you enjoy.
