Dear ETC Friends and Donors,
I am thrilled to report that Environmental Traveling Companions (ETC) has just completed one of our most transformational years of service.
In 2017 we shared educational and accessible adventures with over 3,500 people with disabilities and under-resourced youth,
thanks to you-our community of generous donors, friends, and volunteers
ETC's Special Report
FROM ACCESS TO IMPACT
offers a glimpse of how
you, our friends and donors, make
our shared success possible!
This success sets the stage to achieve even more in 2018-but we need your help!
Your generous gift will enable ETC to continue opening access to the great outdoors!
Access to nature matters at every age and stage of our lives. At 74 years young, Roberta Spieckerman was one of 22 intrepid adventurers who joined ETC and No Barriers USA on our recent Baja Sea Kayak Expedition. She shares:
ETC is a game changer! I don't usually introduce myself this way, but I have Multiple Sclerosis. I've had it for 30+ years.
MS is unpredictable: I am now ambulatory but need different degrees of support, depending on the day. I have never ever felt an assumption of inability with the ETC crew. With ETC I had the chance to snorkel with dozens of sea lions in the wild. Exploring the underwater marine world was a lifetime memory!"
Whether it's a "bucket list" adventure or a weekend whitewater rafting or skiing trip, ETC creates indelible experiences that profoundly impact the lives of our participants and volunteers alike!
This is our purpose and you are a key part of the ETC magic!
ETC depends on friends like you to enrich and forever change the lives of our participants.
(ETC's Tax ID number is 51-0158789.)
The ETC Board of Directors and Staff join me in wishing you Joyous Holidays and a New Year filled with the warmth of family and friends--and great adventures!
