(Press release)

Raise a Minimum of $500 for JDRF by November 30!

JDRF, the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, is the Birkie’s new Skiers For Cures partner for the next three years. As a way to help kick-off this fundraising effort and help skiers who did not get a 2013 Birkie or Korte entry on time, JDRF and the Birkie have arranged to make 50 entries available through JDRF’s “Second Chance” program.

Get one of 50 Entries in exchange for fundraising a minimum of $500 for JDRF! 

SIGN UP NOW!

For Your “Second Chance” Entry
Choose the “Register Now” option. 

Here are the details:

_ The first 50 people who sign-up for this “Second Chance”
fundraising option will be accepted on a first-come first-served
basis. Register online through the link above.

_ To register, each of these people will be required to make an
initial, non-refundable deposit of $50.

_ JDRF will send them their Birkie Entry Form as soon as they
raise the minimum of $500. (Also see Additional JDRF
Rewards, below!)

_ When they register online for one of the 50 Second Chance
entries, each person agrees that they are responsible for raising
and/or donating $500 to JDRF by November 30th. They also
agree that if they do not raise that amount by November 30, they
have the option to simply pay the remainder. If they choose not
to, JDRF will make that Second Chance entry available to
someone else.

_ The skier should complete, sign, and return the Birkie or Korte
entry form to the Birkie office as soon as possible and by
January 31 at the latest. Wave placement will be based on
availability. Send entry to:
