Our 2017 Winter Cat Race to benefit Portland Gear Hub was a big hit – thanks to you!
This year’s annual fundraiser was held at the Riverside Golf Course on Saturday, February 25th. We followed the tradition of our previous Snowman Adventure Challenge race – but with a little twist! This year, the Winter Cat Race rolled out, bringing over 40 riders, great costumes, and tons of in-town fun! The two-person team-biking, snowshoe run, and sledding adventure race started at 11 am as the main event.
In addition to the race, this year there were ice skates and cross country skis available for rent from the Portland Gear Hub. We also took advantage of some of the best sledding in Portland, at the Riverside Golf Course, and all were welcome to come and enjoy. Cocoa, drinks, and food were on offer at the restaurant at Riverside, which patrons enjoyed before, during and after the event!
We can’t thank our community and friends of Portland Gear Hub enough for making this benefit a resounding success . . . stay tuned as we post updates, photographs from the race – and new events on the horizon!
