VASS Corporate Cup

Vancouver Adaptive Snow Sports held the 2nd Annual VASS Challenge Cup yesterday at Grouse Mountain. Today I saw some of the results of the event in video... and was really touched.

The promotional video was created by Giant Ant Media:

Dave Norona, one of Vancouver's most notorious adventurers, created this beautiful video highlighting his experience at the event. His adaptive teammate is a young boy named Karl who lost two of his brothers and was rendered paraplegic in a motor vehicle accident here in Vancouver not long ago. I quickly found myself moved to tears sitting at my desk this morning.

And here's another great video showing the excitement of the day.

Congratulations to all the teams who participated!
