Mush for a Cure FUNdraising Time

     We’re in the thick of things planning for this year’s Mush for a Cure FUNdraiser on the Gunflint Trail.  We’ve got posters, participants and prizes but we still need more.  More participants and more prizes especially. 

     We provide each musher or skijorer with a bag of goodies for raising money for collecting pledges for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The items vary but anything of value is appreciated.  If you want to put something in the bag then just send us 50 similar items.  If you have a business and your company name is on it then that is fine too.

     We also need 10 or more really nice prizes for the top fundraisers.  One year someone donated a dogsled! If you’d rather just send money so we can buy a really nice gift then you could do that too.  Granite Gear has sent us a beautiful pack we can’t wait to give away.  We’ve also received a gift certificate from Nordkyn, a hat from Apocolypse Design and a jacket from Shooting Star Casino. 

     I know many of you would like to support this year’sMush for a Cure and we’d love to have your support.  You can mail prizes or money to 189 Sag Lake Trail Grand Marais, MN 55604 or if you’d rather donate online then you can do that for a particular participant, me included! 

     A big thank you to the Grand Marais State Bank who is our first main sponsor of this year’s event.  That excludes presenting sponsors such as Trail Center, Gunflint Pines, Pump House, Voyageur Canoe Outfitters and Windigo Lodge.  We still need more so come on board.
