A big thank you to all who participated in the Third Annual Roy-llerski and supported the Maine Outdoor Wellness Center! This event, created by Jenny Wilbraham, honors Maine skier Roy Varney by bringing together the cross country ski community and raising money for the Maine Outdoor Wellness Center. This Center was a dream of Roy’s, a place where he could continue to train for cross country skiing and biathlon year-round all while continuing to help out on the farm. The nonprofit Center, managed by Roy’s family and friends, seeks to preserve his memory by providing opportunities to access the outdoors for all Turner and surrounding residents of central Maine and New England. The Center plans to provide an extensive cross country trail system on its 300+ acre farm that can be utilized year-round for hiking, skiing, biking, and running. While this year’s Roy-llerski has come to completion, you can still support the Maine Outdoor Wellness Center by paying them a visit and/or making a donation here.
This year 40 people partook in the Roy-llerski raising over $900. Folks participated in many forms from paddling to biking to rollerskiing, and we had 10 go-getters enter the Rockstar category and complete 71.19k in one effort! To see how everyone stacked up in all the categories, visit the link below. And keep an eye on your mailbox as 20 lucky participants will get event bags with swag from the Maine Outdoor Wellness Center and LL Bean! Thanks again to everyone who participated and we’ll see you next year!
