Nearly 500 children participate in the Ski 4 Kids event annually, with over half coming from Title 1 schools and receiving free bus transportation to the event, along with lunch. Through Ski 4 Kids community fundraising efforts, over $100,000 has been given out in ski equipment grants over the program’s 20+ year history, providing a legacy of ski equipment and instruction to schools and youth organizations that far outlasts the day itself.
Ski 4 Kids registration is free, but donations help make sure all kids, regardless of family income level, have access to cross-country ski programs and equipment. Net proceeds directly benefit local schools, youth organizations, and programs by providing new ski equipment and other needed resources. Funds also cover transportation costs to Ski 4 Kids for over 200 kids from 11 different schools, many Title 1, ensuring many students an outdoor experience that would not otherwise be available to them.
A primary objective of Ski 4 Kids is to award grants to schools and programs to purchase ski equipment.
