Local News

PARK CITY (News4Utah)- The National Ability Center is enlisting the help of supporters locally and around the world.

“We’ve been incredibly fortunate to grow at an exponential rate of 96 percent since 2012,” said Gail Barille, CEO of the National Ability Center. “However, with that growth comes capacity challenges for the current 6,600 individuals we serve annually through 37,000 experiences as well as the new individuals looking to participate in our programs.”

Barille said the NAC has set a goal of  $15 million so the center can continue providing leading adaptive recreation and outdoor adventure throughout Utah and the world.

The center is among the top one percent in terms of size, scope and breadth of services and resources for organizations in its space. Barille says they are dedicated to developing programming to unlock people’s inner potential so they too can experience and live the true meaning of “I Can.”

“Together, I am confident that we can shift the conversation from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I can’ through this collaborative crusade,” she said.

So far, more $13 million has been raised.
