Now in it's 8th year, this fundraising campaign provides direct support for the Nate Chute Foundation, a 501(c)(3) dedicated to suicide prevention efforts in the Flathead Valley and beyond.
Here's how it works:
On March 20th and 21st 2021, Whitefish Mountain Resort will host the 22nd Annual Nate Chute, the second-longest running snowboard banked slalom in the US, and the third-longest in North America. This "Contest for a Cause" partners with the Nate Chute Foundation to emhasize the importance of suicide prevention education, awareness, and outreach in our community. Together, WMR, NCF, and YOU can help fight suicide and promote mental health and resilience. Riders and supporters are encouraged to JOIN THE TEAM and raise money to support NCF's mission and programs.
IMPORTANT!!!!! TEAM MEMBERS MUST PRE-REGISTER TO RACE AT skiwhitefish.com. FUNDRAISING DOES NOT REGISTER YOU FOR THE CONTEST!
Team members who also plan to race the event must register as usual and pay for full registration. If you are a racer AND on the fundraising team, your registration fee will be reimbursed on race day if you have raised at least $350 by 10 pm on Friday, March 19th! Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 fundraisers, and the top 25 team members will also receive a super cool commemorative gift from the NCF as a thank you for their fundraising efforts. And all of you, donors and team members, can feel good about your contribution to mental wellness in our community.
