VAIL, Colo. — On Thursday, nearly 1,000 telecom executives, vendors and partners arrived at Vail for Adaptive Spirit’s 19th annual event at the Vail Cascade Resort.

The event, which was free and open to the public, provided a series of educational forums and networking sessions for attendees and gives the telecom industry a unifying mission to support the U.S. Paralympic National Ski Team.

To date, the event has raised nearly $10 million to support the alpine, Nordic, biathlon and snowboard teams, according to Adaptive Spirit.
