This month’s Community Spotlight is on David Corredor from Tampa, Florida! David is a recent recipient of a KBF Scholarship. He was awarded $500 to travel to Utah to learn to ski with TRAILS Adaptive. “As someone living in Florida,” David explains, “pursuing sit skiing as a sport requires me to incur several expenses, including airfare, ski pass, lessons, and equipment rental.” With the help of the KBF scholarship, David was able to try monoskiing and the Snow’Kart at Powder Mountain and Brighton Resort.

Like many others, David was inspired by stumbling upon accomplished monoskiers on Instagram who sparked a newfound curiosity to explore the sport of sit skiing and join his friends on upcoming ski trips. “Skiing was such an important part of my life before my injury,” says David, “and I want to find a way to stay active and pursue my passion for this sport.”

David has also tried clay shooting, hand cycling, wheelchair basketball, and adaptive golf. He is also part of a weekly tennis group where he gets to use his tennis chair that he purchased with the help of a KBF Active Fund grant! David is thrilled to relive some of his favorite memories and moments that he has created with friends during past ski trips, and the KBF is honored to be a part of his story.
