We started this endeavor to promote women’s interest in recreational snowmachining by offering a friendly environment where women can improve their riding skills, technical abilities and overall comfort level being in the Alaskan backcountry, while learning with and helping one another … and of course the overall objective has always been… to have FUN! Though this is the fifth annual Ladies Ride, it is the first year that we are officially partnering with Providence Alaska Foundation to raise funds to benefit the Providence Cancer Center. We have chosen to support this cause because cancer has affected all of us directly or indirectly. Fighting cancer is a tremendous battle; it takes all of our resources both financially and emotionally. With your help, the Alaska Ladies Ride can help ease the burden of cancer patients in our community.
This year’s ride is scheduled for March 30, 2013 in Petersville Alaska. We are having a Meet and Greet and Silent Auction at ER Alehouse on March 28, 2013 from 7-9PM.
All funds raised by the riders and auction go directly towards the assistance and support of cancer patients in Alaska. There are no administrative costs for this event, as it is on a volunteer and donation of goods and services basis. These funds stay right here in our community to support our friends, families and neighbors. Providence Alaska Foundation will be administering these funds and checks are to be made payable to Providence Alaska Foundation. The office of the foundation is located at 3200 Providence Drive, Anchorage, Alaska 99508 and they can be reached at 907-212-3600.
If you would like to give a donation of items for the auction please contact me at the email address below. If you would like to come to the Meet and Greet to bid on items, it will be open to the public. If you would like to give a monetary donation but do not have a rider to sponsor, you can send a check before March 26, 2013 made payable to Providence Alaska Foundation to:
