The Kelly Brush Foundation was formed in 2006 after Kelly Brush, a member of the Middlebury College Ski Team, was paralyzed during a race. While the Kelly Brush Century Ride was started by the Middlebury College Ski Team as a way to raise money to buy an adaptive mono-ski for Kelly, the event has grown into the largest charity bike ride in the state. Last year, 675 cyclists and 23 hand-cyclists (including Kelly, who won the hand-cycle division of the Boston Marathon this year) raised $275,000 for the foundation. The foundation is dedicated to improving ski racing safety, enhancing the quality of life for those with spinal cord injury (SCI) through providing adaptive sports equipment, advancing scientific research on SCI and supporting the U.S. Adaptive Ski Team.
