EVENT: 24 Hours of Stratton 2018
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2018
DAYS TO GO: 24
On January 6th and 7th I will will be skiing for 24 hours straight along with hundreds of other knuckleheads to raise cash for the underprivileged in Vermont.
The 6th annual 24Hours of Stratton is a one-of-a-kind opportunity, for all ages and abilities, to ride around the clock, as Stratton lights-up its trails for the weekend, to end hunger and poverty in Vermont.
Vermont is a great place to visit and enjoy all the beauty of the mountains and changing seasons, but long winters, high cost of living, and seasonal employment makes it a challenging place to raise a family. Up to 80% of Vermont children live at or below poverty, with limited resources. At least 1 out of every 3 families depends on food pantries to feed their children, and the rural geography limits access to health and dental care. Unfortunately, the cycle of poverty can persist over generations in families where education and health is too often a lost priority.
Since 2013, The 24Hours of Stratton has welcomed nearly 2,000 athletes and raised ONE MILLION DOLLARS for the Stratton Foundation to make a powerful and lasting impact on poverty in Vermont, making it an experience you won’t soon forget. Hundreds of winter enthusiasts from across New England will gather for the Saturday morning parade and official 9AM START. Ski and ride all day and all night until the Sunday's 9AM Finale! Ski under the stars, camp out in the base lodge and share in the spirit of the event that CHANGES LIVES.
