B oulder-based Paradox Sports will host a fundraiser for its programming for the disabled community tonight at 303 Vocka Distillery in Boulder.

All proceeds from the event's raffle and live and silent auctions will go to a twice-monthly adaptive climbing club, three local outdoor adaptive climbing days and three national adaptive climbs for veterans, said executive director and co-founder Timmy O'Neill.

The adaptive climbing club meets at the Boulder Rock Club, and the local adaptive climbing days will be trips to Eldorado Canyon, Boulder Canyon and Estes Park. The national adaptive climbing trips for veterans are at Mount Rainier, Grand Teton and Yosemite, O'Neill said.

Paradox Sports also organizes activities such as adaptive ice climbing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, kayaking and trail running for individuals with physical disabilities.

O'Neill founded the organization in 2007 with D.J Skelton and Malcolm Daly with a mission of improving the lives of individuals with disabilities by integrating them into the outdoor community.

A bike ride with Boulder's Ryan Van Duzer will be auctioned off at the fundraiser, which also includes dinner for two and one night at a local hotel. Van Duzer has said he hopes to meet the "girl of his dreams" through the fundraiser.

O'Neill said Paradox Sports aims to raise $15,000 and increase membership registration.
