Great event coming up at Nashoba Valley next Saturday, when the 16th Annual CSC Jimmy Fund Snow Challenge gets underway at the Westford ski area.
Over the last 15 years, this event has raised almost a half-million dollars for the Jimmy Fund. There is an entry fee of $240 for teams of four, but raise more and your team has an inside track at winning the day's event. For every $150 raised over the registration fee, your team will have one second deducted from your team time. First, second, and third place winners receive prizes. Everybody receives a lift ticket and BBQ lunch with their entry fee.
For more information, or to pre-register, visit www.jimmyfund.org/snow The BBQ begins at 11:30, team races at noon.
