    Chris Brower, Program Supervisor, Adaptive Sports Foundation

    Chris came to ASF via the normal circuitous route. He is an elementary school teacher by training, a bicycle fabricator and mechanic, ski and snowboard technician, outdoor enthusiast and “people person” by nature. Chris grew up in the southern Adirondacks and took his successful high school hurdling career to Keene State College in New Hampshire. Access to the Green and White Mountains further influenced his love for nature, wild places and steep descents.

    Since then Chris has developed a pragmatic relationship with the sports he loves, the equipment required to participate and the “teacher” who wants everyone to get excited about healthy, outside fun. He had to be a mechanic to keep his own equipment working properly and his desire to share the fun led him to “fix” other people’s toys professionally. He has interests ranging from history, music and spa remodeling to biology, nutrition, economics and art.
