Always Choose Adventures

https://www.alwayschooseadventures.org/join

Our Mission:

Is to help people of all ages, backgrounds, skill levels, and physical abilities access the outdoors, get off the couch and disconnect from technology, while connecting with others.

Organization History:

Always Choose Adventures (ACA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 2016 and located in Littleton, Colorado. Chantelle Shoaee, our founder, started ACA after discovering that despite medical advice to stay indoors for the first 30 years of her life due to a COPD diagnosis, she flourished and exceeded her own expectations by challenging herself to go outdoors and take on mountain hiking and other physically challenging activities that able bodied persons frequently dismiss as possible for themselves.

By offering the essential tools, equipment, training, assistance, and confidence support, ACA reminds people, regardless of physical, emotional, or mental disability, that they can do anything they strive to do. By providing this solid foundation, people from all limitations and abilities are able to participate in activity, adventure, and appreciate the outdoors in ways they never before believed possible. The confidence achieved for them impacts their own self-perception and ripples out to those who are involved in their lives. The impact is far larger than the focused effort.

Since 2016, we have helped community members who suffer with cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, autism, traumatic brain injuries, asthma, COPD, and chronic pain get off the couch and participate in outdoor activities for free or through affordable rates. We host many monthly events varying from hiking, backpacking, climbing, camping, canyoneering, skiing, snowboarding, ice climbing, snow cave camping, and much more. We also host monthly socials, with the goal of helping people meet like-minded adventurers.
