TOGETHER WE CAN…

TOGETHER WE CAN…

Welcome to the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team – AFPST

As an independent service charity, we exist to support the recovery of our wounded, injured and sick military personnel and veterans. Having served their country, it is now up to us to ensure they are not forgotten. We aim to foster a sense of purpose, encourage success and re-build self-confidence using the transformative power of para-snowsports. By motivating, engaging and inspiring our athletes, we can help restore their physical and mental health.

TROY CONNER

NORDIC

“Nordic skiing has proved a real challenge on many different levels. I can now truly say I’ve got the fire in my belly back. I’m feeling part of something again – a team and a family”.

DAN SHEEN

ALPINE

In 2008, an IED blew away Dan’s left leg, destroyed the muscle in his right leg and shattered his pelvis. “Those first few years were hell. I found myself wishing I’d died in Afghanistan rather than face the pain… the charity has given me a new lease of life – something to aim for”.

DARREN SWIFT

SNOWBOARD

As an athlete and mentor, double, abave knee amputee ‘Swifty’ has achieved great success. “The charity has enabled me to make new friends in a group of like minded people – an opportunity which is just as important as any new found skills on the slope”.

TOGETHER WE CAN…

Break boundaries and show how courage and determination can achieve great things. We do this through an exhilarating and competitive snow sports programme.

TOGETHER WE CAN…

Make a difference. With our dedicated supporters and generous donors, we can pioneer new pathways, develop confidence and form meaningful relationships that help accelerate recovery. This year alone, we will give over 120 athletes the opportunity to develop new skills on the snow. You can read more about our athletes and their uplifting stories 412-625-9523. Without our incredible volunteers, our loyal donors and the continued support of the general public, such opportunities would not exist.

TOGETHER WE CAN…

Make it happen and inpsire others to do the same.
