The Pink Ribbon Riders will come together with snowmobile riders from all over the West and as far away as the East Coast on March 19-20 for the 3rd Annual Wyoming Snow Run to raise funds for men and women diagnosed with breast cancer.
The pink ribbon ride is on the Continental Divide Snowmobile Trail that runs from Yellowstone National Park to Lander, WY. Uniquely remote and accessible, the groomed trail system carves its way below the towering peaks of the Absaroka and Wind River mountain ranges through some of the most majestic and wildlife rich terrain in America.
The volunteer-based non-profit organization's mission is to provide financial assistance for men and women diagnosed with breast cancer. The Pink Ribbon Riders financial assistance program is made available to help the patients with any financial needs they have while battling the disease.
The fund raising event is called a "Snow Run" and is a two-part event that includes a welcome party and a snowmobile ride, along with a dinner banquet with contests and giveaways. Two of the signature contests that take place are a snowmobile awareness decorating contest and a vintage snow suit contest.
The Snow Run tour has taken place this winter in New York, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota. The 3rd Annual Wyoming Snow Run at Togwotee Mountain Lodge is the last stop on the tour for 2010.
The Pink Ribbon Riders take pride in finding patients in the states in which the Snow Runs are held and even in the communities in which the event is held in to give back to those areas which support them. Patients of the local community are invited to be public recipients of a financial gift and and the families are invited for a night of fun and relaxation as the guests of honor.
The event is open to both men and women and is limited to space at this time as the event is almost full.
