Make a Hero, producers of the award winning film, The Movement, narrated by Robert Redford and Warren Miller, announce a partnership today with Mt. Hood Meadows and Hillcrest Sports. “Our goal is to bring skiers a great ski package with proceeds going towards helping individuals with physical disabilities experience the freedom of skiing,” said former owner of Warren Miller Films and founder of Make A Hero, Kurt Miller.

Oregonians can help support individuals with physical disabilities learn to ski in addition to saving 20% on a Mt. Hood Meadows lift ticket and save $25 on a $100 gift certificate from Hillcrest Sports. See the full details for the Oregon ski package at: http://www.Makeahero.org/deals-support/deals/

For the second year, Make A Hero is partnering with Mt. Hood Meadows and Hillcrest sports to provide this great package to help grow awareness, educate and generate support for individuals with disabilities. Proceeds from this package will allow Make A Hero to inspire individuals with disabilities to “get fully engaged in the game of life,” build their confidence and help them regain their mobility and freedom through sports and recreation. This year, proceeds will also go toward documenting local individuals with disabilities learning to ski at Mt. Hood Meadows by Make A Hero’s award winning camera crew.

Mt. Hood Executive Director, Dave Tragethon, added, “Mt. Hood Meadows is happy to partner with Make A Hero again and support individuals with physical disabilities getting back on the mountain. We believe in the growth of adaptive sports in Oregon and encourage all people, no matter their ability, to come enjoy the freedom of the slopes.”
