TransMontana Snowmobile Charity Ride Cancelled For This Year




We received a note from the TransMontana Snowmobile Charity Ride, held every winter to raise money for several organizations, that the event is cancelled for this winter.

Here are parts of the letter we received from the event's organizers.

"Regrettably the committee is not in a position to move forward with the event for 2013, however, a new and improved TransMontana will definitely be on the calendar for 2014.

"With a new TransMontana chairman, a new Montana Snowmobile Association president and new ideas, we thought it would be a good time to make some changes.

"Over the years, we have helped several different charities, including Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, Multiple Sclerosis Society, MT Deaf and Blind School, National Snowmobile Foundation, local snowmobile clubs and Special Olympics. There has been some discussion as to which charity to support in 2014 and future years. One goal that will remain is to keep the funds raised in Montana to assist Montana families that are in need of the help; not send the funds out of state for administration.

"We will strive to continue with a bus and truck transport for the comfort and convenience of those who participate and select that option in 2014. We desire the fun, riding, friendship and camaraderie we have had over years to continue.

"Since 1991 the Trans-Montana Charity Ride has raised nearly $500,000.00 for charities in Montana."
