Snowmobiling for a Cause

UntitledJoin the Minto Area Joy Riders, Ridge Runners, Valley Snow Drifters and Snowmobile North Dakota on January 9 and 10 at Fair Oaks Golf Course in Grafton to support the 6th Annual Pink Ribbon Riders ND Snow Run.

The Snow Run is a two day event open to both men and women, including a welcome party, snowmobile ride(s), awards banquet and more. Check out this link for more info:

Pink Ribbon Riders helps raise funds to provide direct financial assistance to both men and women diagnosed with breast cancer.  The organization’s vision is to create awareness in the motor sports industry.  These goals help to bring people in communities closer as the disease not only affects those diagnosed but also those who love them.  “Riding in honor and in memory of those we love”, is the slogan at heart that motivates individuals to focus on the importance while sharing a laugh with others!

Fast Fact: Are snowmobiles used only for recreation?

No, snowmobiles serve many other functions. In remote portions of Canada and the U.S., snowmobiles are some residents’ primary mode of transportation. Snowmobiles are relied upon by law enforcement units throughout the snowbelt for search-and-rescue work and emergency missions. They are also used by surveyors, ranchers, public utility employees, environmental and wildlife scientists, and countless others. Snowmobiles are also widely used by cross country ski race officials, dog sled races and by ski patrols for rescue purposes.
