Mush for a Cure Sled Dog FUNdraiser
The 8th Annual Mush for a Cure FUNdraiser is almost here. Come to the Pink Party where Zombie is this year's theme at Windigo Lodge on Friday, March 7th. Get on some pink clothes, make your face look scary and join us for some Fun FUNdraising.
The event begins at 7pm and there will be a coronation of the Zombie Queen and King along with the Bald, Brave and Beautiful Contest where Cory Christiansen, Craig Horak and our first female participant Ana Genz will get their heads shaved by our dedicated volunteer Andrea Everson. You can donate to their fundraising pages by visiting this website.
There is still time to register your team of dogs for the short course skijor event and/or the long course mushing event. This is not a race where one team wins it's an event where everyone wins by raising money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
On Saturday all events will take place on Gunflint Lake in front of Gunflint Pines Resort beginning at 8am with a pancake breakfast open to all. The tent will be set up on the lake in case of inclement weather and the short course event will begin at 10am. The long course will begin and end in front of Gunflint Pines and begins with a Sourdough Start at Noon. Teams will be coming and going throughout the day so there will always be something going on.
The Cook County Ridge Riders snowmobile club will be grilling food and other activities going on throughout the day. We hope you will support this fabulous fundraising event and join us for the Mush for a Cure FUNdraiser.
If you'd like to donate then please visit our website and if you'd like to volunteer then please contact me. If you would like to donate product for prizes or the auction then please feel free to email to arrange pick-up.
