About the event
Paradox Sports was established as a 501 (c)(3) organization in 2007 when a severely injured-in- combat veteran, D.J. Skelton, saw the need for adaptive climbing. Twelve years later, Paradox Sports serves over 500 climbers nationwide, hosts 20+ Adaptive Climbing Initative courses, and runs 5 signature trips yearly.
Our mission is to revolutionize lives through adaptive climbing opportunities that defy convention.
The Base Camp Breakfast and Happy Hour is our biggest fundraiser and is in it's fourth year. On this one day, we make over 1/4 of our fundraising revenue budget and it is extremely important that we find amazing sponsors for it. It will include an hour long program with presentations from a world famous climber as well as three of our amazing participant athletes.
Why should you sponsor?
Paradox Sports was created by an eclectic group of individuals with a common desire to integrate individuals with physical disabilities into the outdoor community by providing inspiration, opportunities and the adaptive equipment needed to participate in human-powered outdoor sports.
Paradox Sports is the brainchild of Army Captain DJ Skelton and professional climber Timmy O’Neill. DJ was wounded in Iraq and is still on active duty in Washington DC working as an advocate for wounded soldiers returning from war.
Since its inception in 2007, Paradox Sports has helped over 3,000 people with physical disabilities—civilians and wounded veterans participate in human-powered outdoor sports. Together we have climbed in Colorado, California, New Hampshire, Wyoming, New York, Florida, Washington, Virginia, Texas, Vermont, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Maryland, Nevada, Illinois, and Massachusetts. We have reached out to injured people while they were still in the hospital and helped them get back on their feet—literally and figuratively.
Common disabilities Paradox Sports serve include individuals with visual/hearing impairments, neuromuscular disorders, autism, spinal cord injuries, paraplegics, amputees, post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries. As we continue to serve the disability community, we anticipate an increase in growth and program expansion throughout 2019.
By sponsoring this event, you are not only proving that you believe in our mission, but you are helping us maintain the incredibly high standard we've set in the adaptive climbing world. Together we can continue to make a difference!
