Gearing up for two incredible days in Oregon with Element Advocate Amy Purdy!
Join us Tuesday in Corvallis and Wednesday in Bend to meet Amy in person and hear her incredible story… if that isn’t enough, we’ll also be hosting a styling competition, DIY craft and be handing out goody bags for all!
For all our friends unable to attend, be sure to stay tuned on our Instagram (@ElementEden)… we will definitely be clogging the feed ;D
Tune in live to hear Amy’s inspiring story and how loosing her legs unexpectedly at age 19 has only further helped her understand the power of resilience.
Amy now holds a world class title in Adaptive snowboarding and has moved on to start non-profit Adaptive Action Sports, encouraging others with permanent physical disabilities to also remain active in action sports.
“We all have disabilities. Just some are more visible than others. We all have challenges, we all have obstacles”
In part three of the Rise Above series, Amy Purdy, talks about non profit Adaptive Action Sports, and it’s mission to support youth and young adults with permanent physical disabilities through action sports programs. She hopes to change people’s perspectives on what it means to be able.
Amy Purdy intimately shares the struggle in overcoming the loss of her legs and what it took to set out in pursuit of her passion in snowboarding during part two in her Rise Above film series!

Our Element Advocate Amy Purdy is out there making a difference again, this time in a video interview for Adaptive Action Sports, the non-profit organization she co-founded to help youth and young adults with disabilities get involved with action sports.
Ok I just love this!! There are not many things that I love in this world more than salads or mason jars (ok, actually there are a lot of things I love, family, animals, sunrises, small doors to distant lands etc. but you know what I mean) so, why not mix the two together! What a perfect way to carry your salad and keep it fresh! I read that if your dressing stays at the bottom of the jar and never touches the spinach that with the lid on, this salad can stay fresh and ready to eat for up to 4 days! Ohh I am picturing a beautiful scene in my refrigerator, salads prepared for the week!
