It’s that time of year again and we are excited to get the 2016 Mad Mountain Dash benefiting the Sunrise Adaptive Sports Foundation underway for our 5th year. This is so much fun! The funds support physically challenged skiers/boarders. The monies buy equipment for Sunrise Ski Park’s Adaptive Program (we have proudly purchased a mono-ski, 2 ski bikes, and are working towards installing a handicap ramp and lift!); purchase lessons for “differently-abled” skiers/boarders so they can learn to ski on our wonderful mountain, and send our awesome instructors to obtain needed designations. The event is a BLAST. In the morning you take a map and ski as a team of three to locations all over the resort and collect cards for a poker run…best hand wins (unless you get there first and then your team wins TOO!) Prizes are awarded. I mean PRIZES! Many generous vendors donate skis, boards, ski passes, outerwear, etc. Amazing stuff! In the afternoon participants will compete on a family friendly obstacle course. Compete, have fun and see just how good you really are.
Participants receive Pre-Event Celebration hosted by El Rancho, T-Shirt, SWAG bag, breakfast, lunch, lift ticket and awards banquet, all compliments of S.A.S., Sunrise Park Resort and El Rancho.
So, what do you need to do? Teams of 3 can consist of skiers and/or snowboarders or a combination of both: male/female or a combination of both: parents/kids or a combination of both. Each team is asked to raise at least $375. You can get donations together from friends/family, community. There is a prize for most dollars raised and there will be prizes for all kinds of dumb reasons. It is just FUN. Think about it. It is a great family activity. Great to get kids and their friends involved. This year’s event is on March XXX. Please contact email@example.com or visit www.SunriseAdaptiveSports.com for more information. We guarantee you a great day and a great feeling. Money raised on the mountain LITERALLY stays on the mountain!!!!!
