Former Hospital Sports Program Skier to Compete in Paralympics


Hannah Pennington of Colorado will be participating in her third Paralympics this year on the U.S. team for giant slalom and slalom in the standing class. Pennington, 31, was born with cerebral palsy and received treatment at Children's Hospital Colorado since she was a child. When she was six-years-old, Pennington started skiing at Winter Park with Children's Hospital Colorado Sports Program and is still involved with the program today.

"Ski racing has developed me as a person. Living with a disability is difficult. When I skied with Children's Hospital, I had new freedoms I didn't realize. I could push it," Pennington said.
