Winter Programs Special Olympics Team Powderhorn Volunteers

John Bethune

I came out to Grand Junction in 2005 to visit my daughter and, as she was involved with CDA, I met some of her fellow instructors. While skiing, I observed the passion and fun they were having with their clients out on the slopes. I asked if I could tag along on their lessons and was welcomed to join in. Needless to say, I was hooked and the next year drove cross country from New England to volunteer full-time in CDA and Special Olympics. This year will be my second full season at Powderhorn, and my only regret is that I didn't start years ago.
