Mark Urich- Big Sky, MT

Mark was born with an underdeveloped right leg which resulted in an amputation when he was two years old. While always athletic Mark didn't discover skiing until 2010 and was just shy of qualifying for the 2014 Sochi Paralympic games.  An unfortunate and unnecessary incident left Mark with a fractured T1 vertebrae in 2014, but even a broken neck couldn't stop our guy from getting back into top shape! We are here to support his goal of bringing home Gold in the 2018 Paralympics and are so proud to have him in our Xevo Family. Read more about Mark and his story at www.teamurich.com 


Anna Beninati- Park City, UT

Anna was just a teenager when she lost both of her legs in a train-hopping accident. Resilient, she picked up adaptive skiing and strives to win at the 2018 Paralympic games.  Anna is not only a talented skier, but she also coaches adaptive skiing and competes in hand cycling.  You can also find her at public speaking engagements- she's a shining example of what strength and a positive attitude can do, and she is an important piece of our Xevo Family!

Tyler Carter- Winter Park, CO

Tyler was born without a fibula in his right leg and subsequently had it amputated when he was one year old. He began skiing at the age of eight and represented the USA in the 2014 Sochi Paralympics. When not competing or training for the 2018 Paralympics Tyler is working with adaptive groups and non-profits for people with disabilities. He is an exceptional person and a wonderful fit within the Xevo Family. Check out his page at www.tcskiusa.com 

 

 

Kyle Moxley- Winter Park, CO

Kyle was deployed to Iraq in 2003 and preformed over 100 combat missions before a 2004 IED shrapnel severed the artery and all nerves in his right arm.  Nerves from his right leg were surgically transplanted to his right arm and resulted in right side paralysis in his right leg/foot and hand.  Now living in Winter Park Kyle trains full time for IPCAS with his eye on Korea 2018 Paralympic Winter Games!

After recovery from his injuries Kyle went on to earn his Associates, Bachelors and Masters degree in Business Administration Management.  Kyle is a recipient of many Military Awards, included but not limited to; (2) Good Conduct Medals, (2) Army Commendation Medals, National Defense Service Medal, and a Purple Heart Medal.  He is an exceptional member of our Xevo Family and we are always thankful for him!
