Early deadline for Komen snowshoe walk
MANCHESTER- Early-bird registration rates continue to be available through Thanksgiving, November 28, for the Susan G. Komen New England’s Snowshoe Vermont 3K or 5K walk. Fees ($30 for adults or survivors) will go up $5 for adults on November 29, with the youth rate remaining at $15.
Snowshoe Vermont will be held on Sunday, January 26, at Grafton Trails & Outdoor Center in Grafton.
Snowshoe Vermont is a family-friendly event with fun for everyone. Snowshoe demos will be available on the event day on a first come, first served basis from official snowshoe partner Dion Snowshoes.
A meet and greet will be held on Saturday, January 25 from 4 to 6 pm at the Grafton Inn. This will be an opportunity to register, turn in donations, and meet fellow snowshoers as well as event sponsors. A survivor group photo and fundraising recognition will take place prior to the start of the Snowshoe Walk. The Tea Cup Raffle will be held, with winners being drawn after all snowshoers are back.
While fundraising is not required, it is encouraged. Registered snowshoers raising $50 or more will receive a long-sleeve event T-shirt.
Snowshoe Vermont allows Komen New England to support many local families through funding for critical breast care services and groundbreaking research, and there are many ways to get involved. Participants can snowshoe walk as a team or as individuals. There are several ways to volunteer, donate or become a corporate sponsor to help Susan G. Komen reach its goal of reducing breast cancer deaths by 50% in the United States by 2026.
