Amy Purdy, Executive Director Daniel Gale and Evan Strong
Freedom Innovations, makers of prosthetic feet for Champion Parasnowboarders, helped bring two AAS Team Members to the US National Parasnowboard Team . . . and onto the podium in the inaugural Para-Snoboardcross event at the 2014 Paralympic Games in Sochi Russia.

Gold Medalist Evan Strong and Bronze winner Amy Purdy were among those supported, in part, by a grant to AAS from Freedom Innovations.  The grant also partially supported AAS training for up-and-coming Parasnowboarders Jay Gaines and Andrew Hale, who are targeting the Paralympics in 2018. Andrew placed third in the USASA Nationals Sport Class this season. Additionally resident athlete Arlene Cohen wore Freedom Innovations feet throughout her competition season and successfully placed first at the USASA Nationals as well!

Congrats to all of the AAS riders on there successful season supported by Freedom Feet!
