- Amanda Walton Scholarship Fund: After a car accident left her with a traumatic brain injury and various polytrauma, Amanda joined our programs in 2002 and has thrived as a year-round adaptive athlete. In 2004, she and her brother set up the Amanda Walton Scholarship Fund to ensure that all athletes, regardless of ability or financial capacity, are able to experience the outdoors without limitations, and the joys this liberation brings.
