Special Outdoor Leisure Opportunities

SOLO provides outdoor winter educational and recreational opportunities for persons with disabilities from St. Joseph County, Indiana in an effort order to:

  • Encourage independence and increase participation in family and community leisure opportunities
  • Educate the community regarding the capabilities of and opportunities for persons with disabilities

Skiing offers a freedom of movement that most persons with disabilities have never experienced. At the same time, it creates an overwhelming sense of accomplishment and unsurpassed confidence. A person who has difficulty walking will find themselves gliding smoothly down the hill with a new found poise and agility.

We welcome both adults and children at least 8 years of age to join us. SOLO is open to students with physical, visual, auditory, or significant mental impairments.

Winter will be here soon enough, but now is the time to focus our efforts on fundraising for the upcoming season.
 Remember that SOLO depends on proceeds from our fundraisers in order to operate each year. Your participation will help us ensure that we can provide another great ski season for our clients, families, and volunteers.

The college football season provides one of our major annual fundraisers. SOLO uses volunteers to operate a concession stand at Notre Dame home football games. We need 5-7 volunteers for each home game. If you would like to volunteer, or if you need more information, please contact Wendy Hurst. We need to have our roster complete by the Thursday of the week prior to each game.
