The Grand Traverse has a proud history of supporting the Crested Butte Nordic Center and other nonprofit organizations. Over the years, many teams have chosen to make their Grand Traverse experience more meaningful by racing on behalf of a charity.
This year, in continuation of the success past years, the Grand Traverse has reserved a number of event slots specifically for teams racing for a charity of their choice. Each team has committed to raising at least $1,500 for their entry. A portion of the money raised will pay for the team’s entry, the remaining amount raised will go to their charity.
We will be listing our 2014 Charity Teams here with links to their fundraising sites and information on their charity of choice. There was an overwhelming response last year; more than triple the number of teams that raced for a charity last year. The Grand Traverse is honored to partner with these dedicated athletes and their charities.
