Kemptville snowmobilers are helping organize an event to raise money for kids with physical disabilities.
Easter Seals Ontario, an organization that has supported disabled children for more than 100 years, has announced details for its 48th annual “Kemptville Snowarama.” It’s being organized with help from the Kemptville Snowmobile Klub, a local enthusiast group.
The fundraising event is set to bring residents together for a public breakfast outside North Grenville Fire Station number one, a silent auction, and a snowmobile rally where racers collect donations and pledges, with all the money going towards the charity.
Several other communities across the province, including Timmins, Sudbury and Thunder Bay, are also hosting Snowarama fundraisers.
Riders need to pledge a minimum of $25 to take part in the snowmobile rally, and need to have a trail permit. People who won’t be riding can still attend the breakfast for a $10 fee.
If you want to sign up to ride, you can find registration details on the Snowarama website. It’s happening on February 5th.
