Jessie Diggins ~ Energy Raiser Event
The Chilkoot Café and Cyclery in Stillwater is hosting a “super high energy raiser” dinner for Olympian, World Champion and US Ski Team member, Jessie Diggins, on November 1st at 6PM. Unlike previous years, this year’s Chilkoot dinner is not designed to raise funds for Jessie, but is an opportunity to raise and share our energy, excitement and exuberance to help power Jessie through pre-race jitters, tough, slushy climbs, and long gray training days away from home. In addition to last year’s stories and this year’s plans, Jessie will have posters to share. The cost for dinner is $30; call for more information and to reserve your spot at the Chilkoot Café, 651-342-0429.
Details: Last season, Jessie had her most successful season yet racing with her US Ski Team teammates in the World Cup circuit. Jessie earned four top 5 finishes on the World Cup and highlighted her season with a Silver medal in the World Championships, the highest finish for a US Woman in a World Championship distance event EVER.
Despite her youth, Jessie is a US Ski Team veteran with five seasons of World Cup racing experience. When asked about her success, Jessie credits the strong emotional support she receives from the dedicated Midwest community, a group that has a long tradition of supporting active kids and of embracing the joys of winter sport. Jessie’s appreciation for this support has long been reflected in the time and effort she devotes to doing clinics with Midwest high school training groups, writing blogs for the MN Youth Ski League and leading Fast&Female clinics around the world. Since her early days as a MN high school skier, it’s part of Jessie’s style to always extend a hand to help others.
