CXC is pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Paralympic Division of the U.S. Olympic Committee to work with Military Veterans in the Central Region (Midwest and Great Lakes Division).  Our outreach program for Veterans started in June in many of the major Veterans Affairs Hospitals in the Midwest, and receiving this grant will only expand our efforts and extend our work with already-established Opportunity Centers.  If you, or someone you know, would like to get involved and a part of this exciting program please email Justin Easter (justin.easter@cxcskiing.org) for more information.

CXC Adaptive Program became an integral part of our organization and we will strive to have an Adaptive component integrated of every aspect of the organization, from youth and recreational skiing to elite level racing. This winter all Midwest Junior Olympic Qualifiers, Wisconsin High School State Championships and Junior Olympics events will include an Adaptive Category.
