Every quarter, GPT donates a percentage of our proceeds to an organization selected by two members of our team. This quarter, Kristen Van Fossen (patient care coordinator) and Lisa Quinn (physical therapist) from our Ravenna clinic have chosen Outdoors for All to receive our support.

We believe Outdoors for All Foundation is an excellent choice for GPT to support. The mission of the foundation is to enrich the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities through outdoor recreation. From its humble beginning forty years ago as an adaptive skiing program serving 15 children at Snoqualmie Pass, it has grown to a foundation serving 2400 children and adults, supported by 700 volunteers and offers more than a dozen programs including snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country and downhill skiing, cycling, hiking, yoga, kayaking, day camps, rock-climbing, camping.
GPT provides clients the care and instruction to improve upon their former level of functioning so they can return to their own favorite outdoor activity. GPT believes it is important to spend time outside as part of an active, healthy lifestyle and we want everyone to have that opportunity, which Outdoors for All aims to provide.
This organization has directly impacted several of us within the GPT family. From the perspective of a volunteer and a participant, Outdoors for All offers an enriching experience for both. Outdoors for All has amazing volunteers and relies upon the financial support of the community to bring outdoor recreation opportunities to a population that is underserved in our community.
