6 Hour Challenge

The Challenge – to perform 6 hours (360 minutes) of exercise in a 9 hour (540 minute) window to allow for rest, change of venue and nutrition.  There will be a window of days in early September to perform the challenge.  Once the Challenge is completed, you will send in your log to gain entries into a Fabulous Raffle.  One entry for each mode of exercise. You must use at least 2 modes of exercise with a max of 7 modes of exercise.  This challenge is open to anyone, anywhere.

Registration will open in August.  Once complete, you will receive your 6hr Challenge Packet.  Then you will have time to plan out your challenge.  There will be an acceptable list of modes of exercises with a chance for you to lobby to get an exercise approved for all participants.

Lots of Irons in the Fire ~ Out There

Well as many of you know the Snow does not have time to melt under our feet… We try to stay Out There and much as possible and sometimes are accused of having a Few to many “Irons in the Fire” . Recently I received a message from someone asking about something they “Heard” we were doing from a Volunteering stand point. I let them know about a project we had in the works and they said ” You need to let folks know what’s all going on Out There” . Well here you go!  Here are a few of those “Irons” in the fire….

Help Support Nordic~

Our Fundraising Site: https://support.nationalnordicfoundation.org/fundraise?fcid=353761

This is where it begins. The passion, the love, the culture of American skiing that’s grown over the last half decade is because of a big push, an effort together. We’re no longer a collection of disparate skiers trying to succeed in the skiing world, rather a unified community exploring what is possible. We believe in American Nordic skiing. You believe in American Nordic skiing. Help to support tomorrow’s American nordic stars today.

  • What: American cross country skiers, fans, and enthusiasts supporting our nation’s developing skiers.
  • When: Now through November 12th
  • Why: We have improved from a nation that seldom put a skier in the top 15 on the World Cup to a Nation with World Champions and a World Cup Champion. Yet as a nation our developing athletes struggle to afford the racing opportunities required to compete among the best.
  • How: There are two ways.
    • 1) Become a Drive for 25 Ambassador. Click the “Become a Fundraiser” button and get 10 friends to donate $25 by November 12th
    • 2) Click the “Donate” button and donate $25 by November 12th.
  • Who: You.  The NNF is stepping up. The NNF is possible because of you.
