Ski-a-Thon Pledge Sheet

Our Ski-a-Thon is an annual event we host in the spring. We encourage students to obtain pledges from everywhere possible family & friends, classmates & teachers, or coworkers & employers. This is a great opportunity for the students to give back to the group and have a lot of fun doing it. This is a weekend event, we have our regular instruction sessions on Saturday. Come Saturday night we have a special potluck where we have a ‘White Elephant’ gift exchange. Everyone has a choice to pick a wrapped treasure…or one that has already been choosen by someone else. Crazy_HatWe also have a ‘Crazy Hat’ contest, this is a fierce competition where you can quite possibly win…bragging rights. On Sunday morning is where things really heat up, We have a race course set up, just like in the Olympics. Everyone is invited to participate for things like best time for a student, best time for an instructor or especially….the most runs. Give it a try, you might get a plaque at the awards ceremony in June!!

 

IDEAS FOR OBTAINING PLEDGES
• Pledge yourself first!! It is easier to get others to sponsor the event if they see your commitment.
• A little goes a long way! It only takes 10 people pledging $10 each to earn $100!
• Pledges can be made on a per run or a fixed basis. Fixed pledges, collected in advance, are the best because you don’t have to make a second trip or call to your sponsor – except to say “Thank-You!! We hit our goal thanks to you!”
• Who to ask? Everyone! Ask friends, family, other skiers, coworkers, companies, your boss, neighbors, and so on.
• Many companies have matching programs for charity fund-raisers, or simply have a budget allocated to donate to charity. Does your company have something like this, or do you know someone who does? Ask around – you may be surprised!
• Get your pledge sheets filled out. We will make more if you need them!
