TetraSki featured on NBC's Today Show
We have an exciting announcement! An NBC News crew with renowned journalist Harry Smith recently traveled to Utah to film the TetraSki at Alta Ski Area and tell the story of its innovation and development by the Tetradapt Team at the University of Utah.
The story aired Saturday, March 2 on NBC’s TODAY SHOW. It featured Derek Sundquist, an inspiring athlete who endured a spinal cord injury several years ago and is skiing independently again thanks to the TetraSki. Also highlighted is Tetradapt Team leader Jeffrey Rosenbluth, spinal cord injury medical director at the University of Utah Rehabilitation Center.
We wanted to share a huge thank you to our friends and partners at Alta Ski Area for their assistance and support. Thank you Brandon Ott, Andria Huskinson and Rocko Menzyk!
And … we have more exciting news!
We are soon launching an online fundraising campaign to raise the funds necessary to bring the TetraSki to thousands of new skiers across North America and beyond.
As you may know, this is the first winter season we have partnered with adaptive ski programs across the U.S. to provide FREE training and use of the TetraSki so that anyone with a physical disability has the chance to experience skiing with full control. The response thus far has been amazing!
The funds we raise will help us build and provide more TetraSkis to national, regional, state, and international adaptive programs so that we can eliminate all barriers to rapid adoption.
