Adaptive Sports Partners train at the Park
The Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country, based in Franconia, arrived early this June 26th morning at the park to train for their 13th Annual Sunrise Ascent of Mount Washington event. This exceptional and impressive event will take place on Sunday, July 31. The incredibly strong, determined, and friendly members hiked up Weeks State Park’s Mountain Auto Road making a 3.2 mile round trip. A big shout out to everyone at ASPNC!!! Great work!!
The Sunrise Ascent of Mt. Washington is an empowering fundraising event to benefit Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing year-round sports, recreation, and wellness opportunities for people with disabilities.

Smiles all around from this gang. Their eyes are on the prize - the famous Sunrise Ascent on Mt. Washington.
The amount of energy and determination required to help others participate in this event is as staggering as it heart warming.
