Maria Peters brought her son Max, who has Down syndrome, to Colorado Discover Ability when he was 4 years old. He started with ski lessons at Powderhorn Mountain Resort. Now age 13, he’s progressed not only as a skier, but as an independent young man as well. “Max feels like anyone else when he skis,” Maria said. “There is no difference.” Since her involvement with CDA over the past decade, Maria has also transformed from a mom to an active volunteer. And when Maria brings Max to CDA events, she trusts he’ll always be well taken care of even when she’s not looking. “It’s like a circle,” she said. “I am a passionate mother and this group has made a huge difference in my kid. So I like to give back and teaching one-on-one with the other participants. “The impact on Max is enormous; 20-30 years from now it will help improve his quality of life.” - - - - - - - - - - - - - - "Our son Andy has always had lots of fun and positive experiences when attending the Colorado Discover Ability summer day camps. Andy looks forward to each camp day and loves the interaction with the others that understand his abilities and his personality. Thank you staff, volunteers and contributors for making Colorado Discover Ability such a successful and important program for those with special needs in our community." ~ Chris Chenoweth - - - - - - - -  - - - - - - - - "We just want to say thank you so much for providing such an excellent experience for our daughter to attend Camp Happy Horse. She had such a wonderful time. This was her first away from home trip. It was so good for her. We would like to say thank you to each person who helped. What a wonderful group! Please pass on our appreciation to each volunteer. The photos on shutterfly are great! We can see how much fun she had." Thanks again, Dave, Kim, and Tawni Smith
