Snowmobilers will hit the trails on Sunday, February 2, 2020 for the Kemptville Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids. The annual event takes place on Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) groomed trails, and encourages winter enthusiasts to raise funds for children and youth with physical disabilities.
Now in its 46th year, Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids combines a passion for winter activities with community participation for a worthy cause. This year, snowmobilers from ten communities across Ontario will take part in this enjoyable family-friendly affair, including those from Morrisburg, Sudbury and Kemptville.
Everyone, snowmobiler or not, is welcome to come out and enjoy this year’s Kemptville Snowarama, which will take place at the Kemptville Fire Hall located at 259 County Road #44 in Kemptville. The Girl Guides and Pathfinders will be running the charity breakfast that will begin at 8:00 a.m. from which all proceeds will go to Easter Seals Ontario.
Following the breakfast and a quick photo opportunity, snowmobilers will hit the trails. All snowmobilers are requested to collect pledges to participate, and pledge forms can be found at the Kemptville Snowmobile Klub, or online at www.snowarama.org.
“For over 45 years the OFSC has enjoyed a successful partnership with Easter Seals Ontario,” said Paul Murray, President of OFSC. “Each year participants look forward to the Snowarama events across Ontario, because they are safe snowmobiling experiences, where funds raised help kids with physical disabilities receive essential programs and services within their communities.”
Funds raised at Snowarama play an important role in providing support for children with physical disabilities, and their families. Easter Seals Ontario was founded in 1922 as a vision to create a better life for children and youth with physical disabilities. Thanks to generous donors, Easter Seals continues to offer programs and services that allow kids to experience freedom, independence and a sense of accomplishment. Together, we help kids BE KIDS.
“For over four decades Easter Seals has benefited from the support of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs,” says Kevin Collins, President & CEO, Easter Seals Ontario. “We have a deep sense of gratitude for the participation of local sponsors and riders who contribute to the success of Snowarama events across the province year after year.”
Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids is locally sponsored and endorsed by the OFSC. To participate or donate to the event, call Kelly MacLaren at 613-296-6824, or visit snowarama.org.
For the past 98 years, Easter Seals has played an important role in providing support for children and youth with physical disabilities from all ethnic and religious backgrounds. Thanks to its generous donors, Easter Seals kids are able to live with greater dignity and independence and focus on what they can do rather than on their limitations. Easter Seals helps by providing funding for essential mobility and accessibility equipment as well as opportunities for fun and friendship at its two fully accessibility camps, Camp Merrywood and Camp Woodeden.
