Ski hill fundraiser returns to Hemlock Resort

Organizers hope to double pledges for second annual MS event

The first Ski to End MS was such a success at Hemlock Resort, they’ve decided to host another one.

The second annual Ski to End MS fundraiser will take place on Saturday, January 28, 2012 at the ski area.

Organizers are raising funds to help provide programs and services to people who are affected by MS, in hopes of funding research to find a cure for this disease.

Last year they raised more than $4,300, and this year they’re hoping to double that amount.

There are plenty of ways to participate, starting with registering online at www.mssociety.ca/msfundraising.

Open the ski registration form pdf and email it to Deanna.mcintyre@mssociety.ca, and download your ski pledge sheet to start collecting pledges.

There may only be a week left, but there are incentives for fundraisers.

Skiers and boarders who raise $300 to $499 will receive a Ski to End MS scarf. Those who raise $500 to $999 receive a $50 gift card from Sport Chek and those who raise more than $1,000 receive their choice of a day lift ticket or value card for Hemlock Resort.

All participants who raise the pledge minimum for their age group will receive a complimentary lift ticket/tube park pass at Hemlock Resort for Jan 28, discounted pizza lunch and beverage, an apres ski reward party invite, a Ski to End MS toque and a chance to win prizes.

The minimum amounts to raise vary by age. For adults over 19, the minimum is $150. For seniors 65 and over, it’s $100. Youth ages 13 to 18 need to raise $75. Children ages seven to 12 should raise $50 and tots under the age of six have a minimum level of $25.

Those with a season pass for Hemlock can reduce that pledge amount by 25 per cent.

The funds raised will continue to enhance the quality of life for people affected by MS and aid in the ongoing research funded by the MS Society of Canada, which includes $1 million to study the newly described CCVSI condition and treatment options.

If anyone needs help registering, they can call Deanna at 1-877-746-9331.
