Dear Far West Nordic Supporter:
We are happy to look out the window this week and see a much needed change in our weather! Snow is arriving in our region at last. However, as you know, this has been a difficult winter for all of us. Due to the lean snow year, Far West Nordic has suffered with fewer membership renewals and huge challenges in putting on our historic fundraising events. The Tahoe Rim Tour had to be rescheduled and the Gold Rush was canceled. These events are critical to Far West Nordic’s ability to sustain its programs. Despite this lean year, we have made sure our junior programs have continued in full force. The lack of snow in our region provided additional challenges for the junior program as a greater emphasis had to be placed on traveling in order to train. In addition to our annual trips to Yellowstone and Soldier Hollow,  we  also put together a last minute trip to Bend, Oregon to give our junior racers a chance to train and race on snow. These programs all depend on the support of our Far West community. Tomorrow, 30 of our junior athletes will head to Soldier Hollow again to compete in Junior Nationals. The following weekend we are also sending a group of juniors to Bear Valley to compete in the Bjornloppet. In order to continue to support these athletes and, more importantly, to foster and develop the emerging new talent we are seeing in our pipeline, we need your help.
As a supporter of Far West Nordic, you already make a difference. We would appreciate your support in helping others make a difference too. Please join us at a time when the budget is tight and the snow has been very late. We have launched a fundraising campaign with an initial goal of raising $10,000 to sustain these programs. Much more than a fundraiser, it is an activation of our entire community. Please help us make this as large and far reaching as it can be.
Your tax deductible contribution to the non-profit Far West Nordic will help support our homegrown talent reach their goals as their quest for athletic accomplishment on the Nordic trails prepares them to achieve their potential in life while inspiring others to do the same. Please take the time now to donate online and ask your friends to do the same. Please click the following link to learn more about our campaign and the athletes that need our help. We urge you to also  share this with your friends by email, Facebook and Twitter.
