For the third straight year, we will be holding a fundraiser tournament type of event to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute on September 10. One of our members, Robert Hayler, works for a company that participates in the annual Pan-Mass Challenge bike-a-thon. Since we are hundreds of miles away from Massachusetts, and we would rather be on the water anyway, we’ll be getting together at the slalom course to swerve and spray instead.
Here is a link to Robert’s fundraiser page for this event where you can donate:
Skiers will be given six passes through the slalom course (three times up and back) to run as many buoys as they can. The event will be free for skiers and spectators, but donations will be welcome. Robert has already been soliciting donations from people to meet his event goal, so there are no obligations from the participants other than to ski and have fun! We will probably work out some details of some sort of competition, such as skiing against your personal best, and there will be awards of some type.
We will need a head count of skiers participating in order to plan our day, so please RSVP to this page or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you will be joining us.
