Snowarama 2017

Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids is the annual snowmobiling fundraising event, which takes place in over 20 communities across Ontario, in support of Ontario's children and youth with physical disabilities. Easter Seals is proud to celebrate over 35 years of community commitment, dedicated to Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids.Snowarama 2015

Snowarama combines winter fun and community spirit, as participants collect pledges in support of Easter Seals kids. Famous wrestler Whipper Billy Watson started Snowarama in 1975, raising over $130,000 in its first year with 12 events across Ontario.

This year our Snowarama event is on January 28th, 2017 and starts at the Ojibway Power Toboggan Association Clubhouse, 108 Abram Lake road for registration at 9:00 am. We will be leaving the clubhouse by 10:00 am with a brief stop in Hudson, then continuing on to Pizza Hut in Dryden via the “A” Trail. After lunch, pictures and fuel. We are back on the “A” Trail retracing the tracks of Snowarama Events from decades past (70's -80's) with our return ride to Hudson/Sioux and the OPTA clubhouse. (Please note the total distance of the event is 220 km approx. Please fill your fuel tank.)

Funds raised at the Sioux Lookout-Hudson, Red Lake Snowarama will help provide children with physical disabilities with essential mobility and communication equipment, as well as summer camping opportunities at Easter Seals’ two fully accessible camps. It can cost families up to $40,000 a year to raise a child with a physical disability and most families can’t do it on their own. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Riding in our event is the Lac Seul Police Service, Railside Sports and Marine, Lakeside Marina and Mc Kinstry Chrysler.

We ask that each participant raise at least $50.00, but any amount would be appreciated.

A huge thank you goes out to all the participants, pledgers, and sponsors for making this event possible.

For more information regarding Snowarama, please visit Snowarama. Online pledging is available.
