    Waterloo, Iowa (February 16) – Clark & Associates’ fourth annual Winter Fun on the Slopes adaptive ski event has been set for Sunday, Feb. 21 at Sundown Mountain Ski Resort in Dubuque, Iowa. This event was rescheduled from the original Jan. 31 date.

    This event is free for those with disabilities and special needs and will include all equipment and lift passes. Family and friends wishing to participate will be responsible for applicable fees.

    Marcus Thurm plans to participate in the annual event for the second year. Thurm said he is excited because it is a great event that allows him to ski with the support he needs to do it safely. Prior to last year’s special event, Thurm said he hadn’t hit the slopes in over four years.

    When it comes to others thinking about participating, Thurm said, “Give it a try. It’s a lot of fun. There is definitely a learning curve involved with skiing, but once you get the basics, it is really a fun activity to do during the winter.

    This event will be led by certified ski instructors with a 2-to-1 instructor to student ratio in three sessions; 9:30-11:30 a.m. 12:00-2:00 p.m. and 2:00-4:00 p.m. Reservations are full, but spectators are welcome.

    “Our mission is to provide rehabilitative services, programs, and experiences to those with disabilities,” said Andy Steele, managing partner of Clark & Associates. “This annual event provides skiing and snowboarding experiences which is something everyone should have a chance to enjoy. It’s a very gratifying event, and we are happy to bring this to the area.”

    Skiers visiting the resort will notice many pandemic-safety precautions in place such as face mask requirements, social distancing reminders, more stringent cleaning, touchless payment options, and limits on the numbers of visitors in the resorts, restaurants, and other open areas. Pre-purchased tickets will be available outside to avoid in-person transactions.

    The Winter Fun on the Slopes Adaptive event is full, but spectators are welcome. To get more information, contact Chad Remmert at cremmert@clarkpo.com. Participant safety is the most important focus of the event, but having fun is also encouraged.

    It’s Beginning to Feel Like Fall

    October has long been known as a month for harvesting crops, beautiful fall leaves and trick or treating.   More recently October has evolved into the month where we place special attention on breast cancer awareness.  Events across the country allow us to rally around those who currently battle the disease, while remembering those who have been lost.  This month’s newsletter is packed with material related to breast cancer awareness.  Additionally, we introduce you to a new team member and provide you with the details of our completed construction project in Waterloo.
