Dear Killington Community Members,
Let’s work together to provide 25 young women and men the opportunity to pursue their skiing/riding dreams.
As you may know, Matt Harnett, a beloved long-time Killington Ski Club Coach, passed away in November 2012. Matt coached our youth programs for many years and was well known for his passion and infectious enthusiasm for skiing, his terrific sense of humor and his outstanding rapport with the young athletes he loved to coach.
We established the Matt Harnett Memorial Foundation five years ago to honor Matt and his outstanding contribution to the Hopefuls and Alpine Stars Programs. The funds we raise are dedicated to helping our young athletes who are in financial need participate in the KSC/KMS Development Programs.
Your support is critical to the continued success of the Matt Harnett Memorial Foundation.
Killington will host the 5th Annual Matt Harnett Memorial Race on Sunday, March 26, 2017. This race is the primary fundraising effort for the Matt Harnett Memorial Fund and delivers 100% of donations through the purchase of raffle tickets, and, new this year, a Rally Me fundraising campaign.
You can purchase tax-deductible raffle tickets at the Killington Ski Club. The raffle prizes, donated mainly from the local Killington community, include skis, retail gift certificates, sporting events tickets, and more. Join us at the Killington Ski Club after the race on Sunday, March 26, 2017 for the dedication ceremony and the raffle drawing.
Now you can also make a donation to the Matt Harnett Memorial Foundation through Rally Me. Rally Me is a sports crowdsourcing fundraising site. Donate directly through the site and please help us share the news about the Foundation on your Facebook or other social media pages: https://www.rallyme.com/rallies/6052/MHMF
Our goal is to have 100% participation from the Killington Ski Club Members. Help us honor Matt, our beloved friend, coach, and mentor who is missed by so many. Your support of the Matt Harnett Memorial Foundation provides young athletes the opportunity to develop their competitive alpine skiing, freestyle / freeride, and snowboarding skills, develop a lifelong love of the sport like Matt possessed and experience their own personal growth that comes from the fun and engaging team environment in the KSC/KMS Development Programs.
We are counting on you to reach our 100% participation goal. Purchase raffle tickets and donate today to give 25 young kids the opportunity to pursue their dreams!
