EVENT: 24 Hours of Stratton
My team is at it again, we are working hard and skiing harder for the Stratton Mountain Foundation. Vermont and Stratton Mountain is very near and dear to my heart as many of you know since I love skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking and any other activity in Vermont. The Green Mountain State has provided me many friends, loved ones, life experiences, countless vertical feet to slay the GNAR(good snow) and as my mother would say….an addiction to sliding down snow no matter the conditions! Stratton has put many a smile on my face, the biggest smile however is that I met my fiancée Kate there….what else could I ask for!?!?!
Now it’s time for me to give back to the community which has provided me so much for so long. The 24 Hours of Stratton Race which supports the Stratton Foundation will be my way to say thank you for all Vermont has given me and in turn will help those who are less fortunate in the area.
- The Cause
The Stratton Foundation raises money to help families directly affected by disaster and also provides critical necessities such as nutrition, housing, heat, and school supplies to children. For those of you who spend time in VT or at Stratton mountain, you know and understand how important this cause truly is.
- Our Challenge
As a member of “The Eddie Troopers” I have accepted the challenge to ski the full 24 hours of the event or until physical pain/dehydration/total exhaustion take over. Some of you may know why we are called the "Eddie Troopers" but for those that do not, Eddie is the character used by the classic heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Iron Maiden plays the infamous ski song RUN TO THE HILLS!!!!! We, the Eddie Troopers are running to and skiing the hills on March 21st for the Stratton Mountain Foundation.
In this challenge, I’m asking you to support me as I try to raise $200 for every hour skied or $4800 total. If you’d like to donate, please select one of the contribution options in the “Make a Contribution” box or you can choose to donate the amount of your choice. Also please consider using matching gift programs to double our efforts. After you’re done, please make sure to share our page with your friends and family so “The Eddie Troopers” can meet our goal!
- Race Details
The race is set to go off at 12PM on Saturday March 21st and end at 12PM Sunday March 22nd at the beautiful Stratton Mountain Resort and we would love to have our friends and families rooting us on!
