  • Now teaching others to live again

Ann  founded UCanSki2 over 25 years ago with the hopes of reaching those that could benefit from programs like hers, that teach others how to live again through the sport of water skiing. She was as devoted to promoting public awareness about the disabled athletes as she was in helping integrate them into the mainstream by promoting sports and recreation for people with disabilities
