MICHCANSKA ADVENTURES SNOWMOBILE CLUB
MICHIGAN LOOP RIDE CHALLENGE 2018
FUNDRAISER TO FIGHT DIABETES
FEBRUARY 15, 2018 – FEBRUARY 24, 2018
MichCanSka Adventures Snowmobile Club has planned a Michigan Upper Peninsula Loop Ride to raise funds for its affiliated diabetes charities. MichCanSka sanctioned club rides raise money and awareness for diabetes research and a cure for this disease. “This ride is important to our club, not only for the ride and challenge, but also for the dedication of the riders to raise money for such an important cause!” exclaimed Don Lipinski, President of MichCanSka. “Our members know the importance of finding a cure for this debilitating disease and this club has shown the world our commitment to go to the extreme to raise money and find a cure. We are proud to be investing in our partner charities with a common goal. Many of our members are diabetic, or have someone close to them who are.”
The 2018 Michigan Loop Challenge will leave Sault Ste. Marie, MI February 16, 2018. The Loop riders will head westward and accompany the “Alaska Challenge” riders toward the Wisconsin state line. They will say goodbye to them and “Loop” back to Sault Ste. Marie via a different route. The route will take them through many UP cities: Christmas, Baraga, Berglund, Silver City, Copper Harbor, Munising and Newberry. The ride will be 9 days on the sleds covering 1100+ miles. The riders are responsible for their own food, gas, and lodging for the trip. 100% of the charitable donations go to the club’s partner charities: American Diabetes Association, Diabetes Canada, and JDRF (formerly Junior Diabetes Research Foundation). In addition to donations to the partner charities, the club is looking for sponsors and donations to offset the treks cost. You can contact the club through their website at www.michcanska.com or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MichCanSka is a 501(c) 3 organization. Past fundraisers have included the following major treks: Lake Superior Circle Tour, 2015 World Tour, Maine to Michigan, Ontario Canada Loop, Gaspe Peninsula, Yellowstone Tour and others.
The MichCanSka Board of Directors wishes to thank all of their members and supporters for their efforts, and is looking forward to working with everyone on this historic trek.
