We are pleased to announce the results of our first race of 2019 at Snegny to raise money for schools in South Sudan. Today, on February 16, 2019, we held a successful race, with all proceeds transferred to Project Education South Sudan: www.projecteducationsudan.org.
Last year, we were flooded with inquires about this year’s events! It is truly amazing to see the increased interest in our fundraising tournaments! Today, over 70 participants competed in our race. This is the highest number of participants we have ever had. This helped us $3,000 raise from the entry fees and direct donations.
We are immensely grateful to all ski teams, participants and parents who found time on the weekend to support Project Education South Sudan! We hope to see everyone at our next event in March! Please tell your ski friends about us so we can reach 100 participants next time!
As usual, at the end of the race, we awarded lots of prizes that were donated by the various sponsors. Maria was onsite to give a speech about our efforts and provide updates from Project Education South Sudan about how they are using the donated money.
Please contact us if you would like another copy of the competition report.
Once again, Snegny Resort did an awesome job at hosting the race! We are also thankful to all of our partners for helping us bringing our charity tournaments to fruition!
Stay tuned for the results of our second event in March! Local ski teams should receive an invitation to the March event in around 1-2 weeks!
Thanks again everyone!
Igor, Nikita & Maria
