Dam Buster, Waterski-A-Thon – September 12, 2015

Words can not express how proud we are of the 20 skiers and 25+ volunteers who participated in LOF Adaptive Skiers’ 1st Annual Dam Busters Waterski-A-Thon on Saturday, Sept. 12 on Lake Zoar. This was a first of its kind endurance waterski fundraising event, with skiers attempting a 22 mile ski run from the Shepaug Dam to Stevenson Dam and back.  The skiers and our volunteer staff in the boats were amazing!  With no practice run, the talented skiers went the distance safely thanks to the crews and made this a truly unforgettable event. In addition to able bodied skiers who came from PA, NY, NJ and CT, we had three participants with spinal cord injuries, one veteran with both hands missing due to war injuries, and two completely blind local skiers. Over $2,000 was raised for LOF Adaptive Skiers from this event. Special thanks to the Marine Police Escorts courtesy of the Lake Zoar Authority, to Candlewood East Marina, Danbury PowerSports, and Dunkin Donuts for their support–and to the NewsTimes for their awesome news coverage of our event >view NewsTimes story. >Click here to view our Dam Busters photo album Original Post About Dam Busters: An 11 & 22 mile Waterski-A-Thon from Shepaug Dam to Stevenson Dam to Benefit Disabled Athletes REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT.
