Every year our Women’s XC Ski Day event chooses a benefit organization to support and this year we’re fundraising for Stride, an organization whose mission is to remove barriers to entry and get girls in the game and on the trails by providing mentorship, gear, and learning opportunities to young female athletes in Vermont. A portion of every participant’s registration fee goes to Stride and you can make an additional donation to the organization through our registration page HERE (scroll to the bottom). We still have some spots open for registration so get signed up today!
There will also be a fundraising raffle on event day ($5/ticket) for a framed photo of the Bower Ski Trail from Vermont photographer Anne Majusiak. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to Stride. Take a sneak peak of the photo below and check out Anne’s website or follow Anne on Instagram to see more of her beautiful work. Thank you Anne for your generous donation! Raffle tickets will be available for sale on event day.
We also want to bring your attention to our COVID Guidelines HERE (updated January 7th, 2022). Please note that lunch will be bagged so you want eat in your car or picnic-style outside. Sue Wemyss’s presentation will take place after lunch in the Barn with masks. We will keep the Barn doors open so you will also have the option of bringing a chair outside and listening in. Please note that Rikert requires anyone utilizing indoor space be vaccinated!
