SSCV Athletes - Have you Completed 2 Easy Steps for the Scholarship Fundraiser?


Why Wait?
Sign up is EASY!

January will be here in two days so it is time to "Bring It On" and start your fundraising for the SSCV Scholarship Fund. Remember, we are only asking SSCV athletes to participate in this ONE scholarship fundraiser this season. We are not selling holiday trees or raffle tickets this year so we would like EVERY SSCV athlete to participate in this fundraiser. 
 

100% participation of $100 raised per athlete = 
$60,000 or more in Scholarship Funds!



 

 Step #1 :: Sign Up

We need to know that you are participating so please register here (it should only take you a minute). You will need to provide your name, contact coach, pass number and date of birth and let us know if you would like your own personal fundraising page.
 

 Step #2 :: Fundraise

You have 3 options to fundraise. The more money you raise, the more prizes (see below) you will earn and the more kids you will help!
 

Option 1 - Create a Personal Fundraising Page

Email us here and we will set up your personalized page, complete with your personal url - it is that easy!


Option 2 - Direct Donors to your Team's Page

1. Tell donors to visit our fundraising website here.
2. Click SEARCH where it says "Find a Fundraiser to Support" to find teams/names.
3. Select the athlete or the team you would like to support.

More about the Fundraiser

This January we are having our 5th annual ski/ride-a-thon for the Scholarship Fund.  For the 2nd year we have consolidated all of our scholarship fundraisers into this one major fundraiser.  The â€œMonth Long Bring It On” ski/ride-a-thon is for ALL of our disciplines and our goal is to have ALL of our athletes participate. There will be goals set for each discipline with prizes available to the highest goal achievers, as well as for the highest fundraisers. We are looking forward to having one super fun and all-encompassing fundraiser.

The athletes of each discipline will have a specific set of challenges set forth. For example, alpine racers, mogul skiers, freeskiers, and snowboarders will participate in a Vertical Challenge where they will compete to ski the highest number of vertical feet for the entire month of January. Vertical mileage will be tracked with Vail Resort’s  EpicMix and the participants who ski or ride the most vertical feet will win prizes. Nordic athletes will track the mileage they put in for the month of January through their monitors and by their coaches. All athletes will be asked to collect pledges for their participation, making this a competition both on and off of the snow!

The competitors will be able to ask friends and family to support them by donating to the SSCV Scholarship Fund during the month of January. 

For questions, please contact Emmy Hoyt at ehoyt@skiclubvail.org or 970.790.5122.

Thank you in advance for your participation!!!

Did you know?!

We believe that no one should be restricted from participating in SSCV programs because of financial reasons.  Hundreds of boys and girls have been the beneficiaries of scholarships from SSCV to help defray program costs.  Last year, 122 kids from over 584 participants, or 20% of SSCV athletes, received assistance totaling over $225,000.  Your participation directly assists these young men and women in their pursuit of personal growth through their on-snow dreams.
