On March 7, 2014, Annie’s House held its grand opening in Bottineau, ND. Annie’s House is a one-of-a-kind recreational facility for individuals with physical/cognitive disabilities, as well as wounded warriors injured in combat.
Annie’s House is named for Ann Nicole Nelson, who was killed at age 30 in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center while working at Cantor Fitzgerald. After her death, her mother found her “bucket list”. One of the dreams Ann listed there was “buy a house in North Dakota”. She also had great interest in helping people and in winter sports.
Annie’s House combines these dreams, giving disabled children and adults a place to enjoy skiing and other winter activities. The New York Says Thank You Foundation helped to build Annie’s House.
