Snowmobilers from across Ontario are revving up their engines for the annual Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids events taking place across Ontario. This unique fundraising experience combines thrilling snowmobile riding with an opportunity for snowmobile clubs and snowmobilers to join in the camaraderie of family activities to help children and youth with physical disabilities.
Taking place on OFSC trails, Snowarama challenges winter enthusiasts in communities all over Ontario to raise donations for Easter Seals. Whipper Billy Watson originally conceived the event in 1975 and so far OFSC clubs have helped raise more than $18.2 million to benefit kids with physical disabilities.
Easter Seals is our longest running preferred charity and we encourage all of the snowmobiling community to support Snowarama in their area this year,” said Murray Baker, OFSC president. “It is particularly important for our support in this pandemic year, by registering and getting pledges to help this worthy cause.”
Donations to Snowarama help provide funding for essential mobility and accessibility equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs, ramps and bathing equipment, as well as offer kids opportunities to experience fully accessible Easter Seals camp. Easter Seals owns and operates two fully accessible camp properties and is recognized as an industry leader in providing specialized camping experiences for kids with physical disabilities.
