We’d like to highlight a few sponsors:

Kroenke Sports Charities
Colorado has been one of the country’s leaders in adaptive sport development for many years. A key reason for Colorado’s unprecedented success in this area has been unwavering support of Kroenke Sports Charities, which has provided funding for Colorado adaptive team sports since 1996 and is now an invaluable partner of Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation.

A few of the many highlights of Kroenke Sports Charities’ contribution to adaptive athletics in Colorado include:

  • Granting over $500,000 to Avalanche Sled Hockey and the Rolling Nuggets Wheelchair Basketball programs since 1996.
  • Creating the first National Hockey League franchise/local sled hockey named partnership by creating Avalanche Sled Hockey in 1996. Today, based on the example set by Kroenke Sports Charities and the NHL Avalanche, more than half of all NHL franchises support their local sled hockey programs.
  • For six straight years, through its partnership with the Denver Rolling Nuggets and Gold Crown Foundation, hosting the National Wheelchair Basketball Association (NWBA) national championship tournament, showcasing nearly 100 teams of all ages from around the country.

Kroenke Sports Charities’ partnership with CASF has been about more than its financial contribution. The key to the partnership’s success has been Kroenke Sports Charities’ overall support of our mission to bolster the independence, improve the self-confidence, elevate the social interaction, and enhance the quality of life for people of all ages with physical disabilities throughout Colorado. It has been – and continues to be – about helping people with disabilities experience all the thrills that competitive team sports have to offer. None of these things would have been achievable without the support of Kroenke Sports Charities. Kroenke Sports Charities Website

Daniels Fund
In 2014 the Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation received a grant from the Daniels Fund Amateur Sports Division to support the general operating expenses of the foundation. The Daniels Fund is one of the largest private foundations in Colorado. Established by Bill Daniels, a driving force in establishing the cable television industry, before his passing in 2000, the Daniels Fund provides grants to non-profit organizations in a four state region that provide significant positive impact to society in their area. The Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation is grateful to be selected by the Daniels Fund as one of those organizations making a positive impact in its community through its work promoting adaptive team sports.

Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation
Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation received a grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation to purchase hockey sleds for the Little Avs Sled Hockey Program. The Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy. Because of the Reeve Foundatino’s donation of equipment, the Little Avs Program will be able to offer the opportunity to play sled hockey to over a dozen youths.

ARC Thrift
Arc Thrift has recently become one of Colorado Adaptive Sports Foundation’s biggest and most loyal supporters. Lloyd Lewis, CEO and President of Arc Thrift, has offered the company’s assets to assist CASF wherever possible. Arc Thrift sponsors every event that CASF hosts, including our Two Club Classic and the annual CASF Sports Breakfast. Many of Arc’s employees have also volunteered to work with CASF. Maggie Scivicque, ARC Marketing Director, serves as the Secretary for the CASF Board of Directors, while Frances Owens, Arc Community Relations Director, has provided invaluable assistance in connecting CASF with many of its current donors and sponsors.
