Since its founding in 1997, WinterKids has helped more than 100,000 Maine children to get outside and active with innovative outdoor education programs for preschools and elementary schools statewide. This year marks the organization’s 20th anniversary of WinterKids founding program, the WinterKids Passport, which has afforded thousands of Maine children the opportunity to learn to downhill and cross-country ski, ice skate, snow tube, and snowshoe at 50 participating winter sports partners across Maine. In 2016, the organization began serving children in New Hampshire schools as well.
WinterKids helps children develop healthy lifelong habits through education and fun, outdoor winter activity. The organization delivers innovative outdoor programs for families, schools and communities. For more information, visit www.winterkids.org .
"WinterKids is a fantastic organization that encourages kids and their families to get outdoors and be active, so they can enjoy our Maine weather year-round. We are excited they have been selected as this year's beneficiary," said Larry Wold, president of TD Bank in Maine. "We couldn’t be happier to have them on board and continue the tradition of great organizations we have had the privilege to work with.”
