Andrew Kurka and Adaptive Spirit
Adaptive Spirit's mission is to fund dreams by providing financial support for the U.S. Paralympic Ski Team. Netcracker supports Adaptive Spirit and has been a proud sponsor of world champion Paralympic skier Andrew Kurka. Netcracker's relationship with Andrew has grown over time, as he maintains an exemplary commitment to inspiring others.
"Working with Netcracker for the past few years has helped to mold my career. Being my first big sponsor and showing their support has kept my career afloat, helping to progress me to the top in the world," said Kurka, who will compete in the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. "But more importantly, Netcracker has helped me to be a positive example to others and help to make a difference."
Cradles to Crayons
Cradles to Crayons works to help disadvantaged children by providing them with shoes, clothes and other critical supplies they need to start the school year. Through grassroots community drives and corporate donations, and through a network of diverse service partners, the nonprofit donates supplies to children that need them every year.
"Our mission at Cradles to Crayons is to provide children around the country with the everyday essentials they need to thrive at home, school and at play, these include clothes, school supplies, toys, books and shoes," said Susan Adler, Director of Corporate Relations at Cradles to Crayons. "Netcracker not only donates to this endeavor but also participates in local events to help its neighbors. We are so thankful for Netcracker and its continued support."
Dedicated to promoting secure, nurturing parent-child relationships, Families First uses modernized parenting education services. Families First helps parents without access to adequate resources as they struggle to address the common obstacles confronting today's youth, such as media violence and bullying.
"At its core, Families First is about supporting families to ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed. Netcracker joined our family this year in support of this extremely important objective," said Susan Covitz, Executive Director at Families First.
