Out There with Ben Saxton (Fundraiser)

Minnesota Native Ben Saxton!

Aug 22nd we held a Great Fundraiser for Ben in the Twin Cities. From the Youth event to the Evening at the Saxton home. A Great experience. Wonderful learning, food, conversation and great presentation by Ben that evening about SMS, US Ski Team and his travels. Next time YOU should be Out There!

We are working with Ben ~ US Ski Team & SMS T2 member to help support his dream of being the Next Genereation Out There to grow Nordic in the USA. Ben had great performances last year at U23 Worlds and the opportunity to race at the WC in Falun. What will be next!
