I-Skate: Dorothy Hamill’s Adaptive Ice Skating Program
I-Skate was established in November 2009 to allow children with physical disabilities the unique opportunity to learn how to ice skate, not only improving their health and independence, but also providing important social interaction with their peers. Skaters use specially designed adaptive ice skates, walkers, ice sleds, and helmets. Individuals with a wide range of disabilities are eligible, including those with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, muscular dystrophy, limb differences, and paralysis.
