Challenge Aspen

National Council Membership

Challenge Aspen’s National Council is a group of generous and influential donors who support and advance the work of our organization, which is dedicated to impacting lives through year-round adaptive experiences for individuals faced with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. National Council support provides critical funding to uphold the quality of Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities (CAMO) and Recreational, Educational and Cultural (REC) programs, and in turn, improves the quality of life for those living with disabilities.
