Want to ski for 24-hours straight, and raise money for a great cause? The 24-Hour Charity Challenge at Sunday River is an inaugural fundraising event to benefit The River Fund, an organization that supports youth to unleash their potential through education and recreation.
Starting at 9am on March 16 through 9am on March 17, we will be hosting our very first annual 24-Hour Charity Challenge with a goal of raising $125,000. The challenge is to gain points for every hour on-mountain, with an opportunity to earn more points by participating in fun activities.
You can sign up for the 24-Hour Charity Challenge as an individual or a team of skiers and riders up to 12 people. Registration is $50 and includes a lift ticket good for the entirety of the 24-hour challenge, a commemorative bib, swag bag, access to the celebratory pancake breakfast, admission to the pre-challenge party on Friday night, and more.
The $50 registration fee is non-transferable and non-refundable.
