Ways You Can Help

The life-changing outdoor recreation opportunities DSES creates for our athletes and their families rely on the contribution of our entire community. Cash donations to DSES help purchase equipment, provide scholarships for our athletes, help train our volunteers, and keep lesson costs low. Every gift makes a meaningful difference in the lives of our students.

Donate to help DSES athletes discover the thrill of adaptive sports!

There are lots of other ways to support DSES and our athletes including donating or purchasing used goods at the Second Chance Thrift Shop, where all the proceeds go to DSES programs, or buying DSES logo wear and showing your support of DSES wherever you go!

Every summer, volunteers, staff, and athletes participate in a peer-to-peer fundraiser and cycling challenge called Sierra Cycle Challenge! Support rider’s raise funds for adaptive recreation in the Eastern Sierra here.

Volunteers directly support our students and our programs by donating time and skills, whether as outdoor instructors, in the office, or at Second Chance Thrift Shop.
