Ride the powder, bring your friends and raise some dough at the 18th Annual Jane-a-Thon! This ski(ride)-a-thon fundraiser is held annually at Mary Jane/Winter Park and raises money to bring Invest in Kids’ proven programs to communities across Colorado.
Each team member will be given a lift ticket ($103 value) and a Flaik GPS to track all of their runs through the day. After the event you can view and share all of your kick ass stats online.
In addition to there will be an après party (FREE FOOD & DRINKS) where team and individual prizes are awarded for fundraising, vertical feet, fastest speed, blue/black runs and mogul run completion.
In the past the DBC won the top spots at this event and took home tons of great prizes, so let's do it again this year! Can we be the first to crush all 16 blue/black runs for the prize? I know we can!
Here is how it works if you want to join the DBC team:
Click HERE, Go to "Join Team" and follow the steps to join the Denver Boarding Coalition group. Next all you have to do is pay the registration fee and commit to raising at least $150 in pledges for the kids.
Depending on how many people we will split the teams so that they are fair for the competition.
Moguls Challenge (there is a non-mogul challenge as well):
