THS Community Partner of the Month
Nation Ability Center (NAC)
 
The National Ability Center (NAC) is an internationally prominent 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to empowering individuals of all physical, cognitive and developmental abilities, including competitive athletes, youths, veterans and more, by building self-esteem, confidence and lifetime skills through world class adaptive recreation and outdoor adventures, including sport, recreation and educational programs. Founded in 1985, the NAC, which is Park City-based and has operations in Salt Lake City and Moab, is the largest adaptive recreation program in the United States. 

Did you know:
  • The NAC operates out of a campus adjacent to Park City Hospital, and has facilities for whitewater rafting and camping in Moab, along with Nordic facilities at the base of Park City Mountain which operate in partnership with Vail Corporation.
  • Military programs for veterans are in the roots of the NAC. NAC’s first programs were started by our founders, Meeche White and Pete Badewitz, who took a handful of Vietnam veterans skiing at Park City Mountain in 1985. The NAC’s military programs remain a vital part of its operations.
  • The NAC has a proud history of sending its paralympic athletes to national and global competitions including the upcoming 2022 Winter Paralympic Games in Beijing. In 2018, four of the NAC’s competition team athletes brought home a collective seven medals from the South Korea Olympics.
  • The NAC’s motto is “I Can”, focusing on how its participants can achieve or exceed their potential.
To achieve its mission, the National Ability Center relies heavily on the support of an army of volunteers. You can volunteer at https://discovernac.org/ways-to-give/volunteer/. For further information, you can also contact the National Ability Center at 435-649-3991.
