WinterKids Downhill 24 fundraiser is March 4, 5 at Sugarloaf

WESTBROOK — Registration is open for the 10th annual WinterKids Downhill 24, which will be held March 4 and 5 and Sugarloaf.
The 24-hour ski and snowboard challenge raises money for WinterKids programs, which help kids build healthy habits through outdoor, winter activity.
Teams can register for a day-only track, 24-hour track, or a new 24-hour skin-up track. There are registrations for corporate teams and individual teams, with teams of up to 12 people. The event runs 9 a.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday with a full schedule of events, including a race arena, inflatable obstacle course, trivia, raffles, all night mid-mountain party, music, food and more!
There will also be a Saturday night celebration in Sugarloaf’s King Pine Room with the Mallett Brothers Band and Elec Simon & Friends.
The organization aims to raise $1 million in celebration of its 10th anniversary.
Julie Mulkern, WinterKids’ executive director said the proceeds will go toward creating a Downhill 24 Outdoor Fund, which will further address some of the barriers kids have to getting outside in the winter – including transportation, equipment, and clothing.
