Event organizers are seeking volunteers who own snowmobiles and disabled veterans who are interested in participating in the 2020 Disabled Veterans Snowmobile Ride.
Veterans must be at least 30 percent service connected disabled, as rated by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Disability does not need to be combat related in order to participate. Veterans will be chosen on first-come, first-serve basis while space is available. Transportation to the mountain will be provided for those who need it. Ride also includes lunch, snowmobile and guide at no cost to the veteran. Veterans must have own cold weather clothing.
Volunteers will be riding coaches to a disabled veteran(s); and bring at least two snowmobiles to the ride; one for the volunteer and one for a veteran(s). Volunteers would be paired with a disabled veteran throughout the day and be able to offer them riding assistance, coaching, moral support, etc., so that they have an enjoyable day on the mountain.
The volunteers’ snowmobiles should be fairly new, in good operating condition and full of gas/oil and ready to go. The more volunteers who sign up, the more disabled veterans who can go snowmobiling. If you as a volunteer are representing a business or organization please contact the person listed below so he can include your logo on the ride poster and t-shirts.
The ride date is March 14, and the group will be riding from Frances Wallace trailhead in McCall, ID. Lunch will be provided free of charge to all participants. Please call to sign up and for any questions you have. This is a great event each year and the group has a lot of fun. Please consider participating if you are willing or interested.
