"Hit the Trail" for Manito-wish
Do you like to run, ski, bike, paddle and portage (or something else)? Ever do one of these activities in a race or marathon? Now you can “Hit the Trail” for Camp Manito-wish YMCA!
Camp Manito-wish YMCA raises money to support camperships for our program participants. Camperships are granted for ALL programs (Summer Camp, Outpost, Family Camp, Leadership, etc.) and EVERY dollar raised is important.
Every year we hear from alumni and friends who would like to help raise money for camperships, but aren’t quite sure how they can help. Well, we have a solution!!
I’m pleased to tell you about the new “Hit the Trail” program. There are just 5 easy steps to participate!
1) Choose a race or event in which to participate and register through the race organizers.
2) Set a goal for the amount of money you’d like to raise.
3) Invite family and friends to sponsor you in your upcoming race.
4) Participate in your event.
5) Celebrate your success!
One of the other fun things about this program is there are no limits to age, geography, or number of events. You can do this by yourself or with a group of people who want to support Manito-wish. It could also become a great annual tradition for you and your friends!
To get more information (including hints, tips and a sponsorship form), contact Ellie Orbison at Ellie Orbison.
The program materials will be available online soon!)
Thanks for considering this new way to help more people experience Camp Manito-wish YMCA. We look forward to hearing how YOU “Hit the Trail”!!
