2017 SNOWARAMA FOR EASTER SEALS KIDS CROSSES BORDERS!
Grab your helmets and winter gear because the coolest snowmobile event hits the trails on Saturday, February 11, kicking off the 2017 fundraising season for Easter Seals Ontario. Once again, the Thunder Bay Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids will head south of the border to
Grand Portage, only 45 minutes from Thunder Bay, attracting snowmobilers from across northwestern Ontario and Minnesota to enjoy some of the finest groomed trails in northern Minnesota.
Easter Seals Ontario was founded in 1922 as a vision to create a better life for children and youth with physical disabilities. Thanks to generous donors, Easter Seals continues to offer programs and services that allow kids to access essential mobility equipment and communication devices so that they live more independent lives.
“This is the 14th year of this event and we feel very privileged to have such dedicated support from Grand Portage Lodge and Casino along with all of the other local sponsors and riders who make this event a big success year after year,” says Carol Lloyd, President & CEO, Easter Seals Ontario.
All Snowarama participants will enjoy a complimentary dinner and a Saturday night entertainment. Snowarama is truly a family event: participants can enjoy the trails, a bonfire and prizes throughout the weekend. Minnesota trail permits are $36 (available at Ryden’s 66) and will be required for those riders who venture off the Grand Portage Reserve trails. The event is generously sponsored by Grand Portage Lodge and Casino, the Grand Portage Trail Riders, and the Grand Portage
Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
To celebrate the 14th year at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino, with every $100 in pledges participants raise, they will receive a ballot to win 1 of 14 Snowarama gifts, including TWO trips to Las Vegas, The Edge Water Park Package, Hollow Rock rental and many more!
Over the past 14 years, the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Snowarama has raised over $370,000 for children and youth with physical disabilities. Funds raised at this event help provide financial assistance for children with physical disabilities for essential mobility and communication equipment and fully accessible summer camping opportunities. Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids would not be a success without the support of the local snowmobiling community. Together we are helping kids BE KIDS.
