Snowmobile rides in Sault Ste. Marie and Bruce Mines support children with physical disabilities
Due to the number of trees downed by the snow storms earlier this month, the Bruce Mines Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 22nd. The Bruce Mines Sno Glyder volunteers are working hard to clear the trails, and invite all fellow sledders to come out and spend a day on the trails in support of children and youth with physical disabilities. The Sault Ste. Marie Snowarama will proceed as scheduled on Saturday, February 8th, and it will see a couple of familiar faces.
Adam Hay first started riding in Snowarama when he was just 8 years old and would ride along with his dad, eventually joining him on their family’s second machine. Six years ago, Hay started bringing his own son Kieran to the event “It’s been no question from him that he wants to go every year. It’s become our tradition to go on this ride together. We have a good time every year, and are happy we are helping out a good cause,” shared Hay, “The time spent on the trails, the fellowship with the other riders and of course the one on one time I get with Kieran.”
Both rides include breakfast, lunch, access to the trails for those who do not own a trail pass, up to $25 worth of gas, and a prize draw with multiple prizes donated by many local businesses. To participate and receive all the incentives, riders must raise a minimum of $150. Riders 25 years and younger can participate for a reduced rate of $100, and children 12 and under can eat for free and ride with their parents for only an additional $20 raised.

Donations to Snowarama directly assist financing for vital mobility equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs and communication devices and summer camp. Easter Seals owns and operates two fully accessible camp properties and is recognized as an industry leader in providing specialized camping experiences for kids with physical disabilities.
