Recipient Bio: 
Martha feels that snowboarding has had a positive impact on her life both physically and mentally. Breathing in the cold air on the top of a mountain makes her lungs feel strong and lets her feel truly happy. She can also feel her whole body being worked when she is on the mountain. When she’s snowboarding nothing else matters to her, she feels completely content and all her worries vanish. She knows that staying active is important if she wants to control her CF and diabetes. Martha used her grant to get season’s passes to a near by mountain for herself and her best friend. “Snowboarding isn’t just something I do to kill time; it has become such a positive and healthy aspect to my life.”
