2019 SNOWARAMA FOR EASTER SEALS KIDS CROSSES BORDERS TO BENEFIT KIDS WITH PHYSICAL DISABILITIES!
Grab your helmets and winter gear because the coolest snowmobile event hits the trails on Saturday, February 9, kicking off the 2019 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.
Thanks to generous donors, Easter Seals Ontario provides programs and services that help kids with physical disabilities get essential mobility and accessibility equipment and opportunities to attend Easter Seals fully accessible summer camps.
“This is the 16th year of the Grand Portage Snowarama 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 Kevin Collins, President and CEO, Easter Seals Ontario.
All Snowarama participants will enjoy a complimentary dinner and live Saturday night entertainment, featuring Rage N’ Country. Snowarama is truly a family event: participants can enjoy the trails, a bonfire and prizes throughout the weekend. Minnesota trail permits are $51 (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 16th year at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino, with every $100 participants raise, they will receive a ballot to spin the wheel and win 1 of 10 Snowarama prize packages, including two trips to Las Vegas, and many more!
Over the past 16 years, the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Snowarama has raised over $450,000 for children and youth with physical disabilities. 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.
