Times are tough on a lot of charitable organizations, but the Pink Ribbon Riders that grew out of the snowmobile world is not letting up – it’s celebrating more than 15 years as a non-profit organization that has given $2,014,000 million in direct financial assistance to patients in need since 2006.
Aside from holding fun and memorable Snow Run Tour events and snowing up at snowmobile shows and festivals, PRR also hosts events related to motorcycles, golf and even has flown from airplanes with sky diving fundraisers over the years, utilizing active outdoors hobbies and passions to make one day less stressful for women and men battling breast cancer.
The COVID-19 pandemic may have affected a lot of things in our society, but it hasn’t changed Pink Ribbon Riders’ dedication – or the need to help the people who are the end beneficiaries. Cancer does not stop even in a pandemic, so the Pink Ribbon Riders continue on when cancer patients need them the most.
With that in mind, PRR is still planning to host four ride-along events this winter in four of the states that have traditionally been very supportive of the organization. There will also be a “Virtual Snow Run” that will be conducted on the organization’s website all winter long.
The first Snow Run event will kick off in Old Forge, New York, celebrating the 17th New York Snow Run on February 13th. The attention then turns to the Upper Midwest with back-to-back events of the 15th year of both Minnesota (February 20) and Michigan (February 27).
The Snow Tour ends out west at the Togwotee Mountain Lodge on March 20 for a one-of-a-kind unique event when you never know who you will see riding with this event.
