A big thank you to the dedicated individuals who participated in the Fifth Annual Roy-llerski and supported the Maine Outdoor Wellness Center!
This year’s online Roy-llerski raised $255 with seventeen unique participations. On July 15th the MOWC also hosted their annual fundraiser and community gathering to celebrate the Center’s three-year anniversary. You can check out some impressive skiing by our Speedy Repeaters and the mother / son challenge in the 1:11:19 categories here. Thanks again to everyone who participated for supporting the MOWC and keeping the memory of Roy alive. #forroy

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.
