(Public service announcement)
We want to show our U.S. Ski Team how many of us are cheering them on as they chase our first cross-country Olympic medals since Bill Koch’s silver back in 1972. To get the ball rolling, a donor has pledged to donate $1 to Boston & New England Nordic programs for every comment posted on Noah Hoffman’s blog between now and the opening ceremonies in Sochi.  There’s more on the pledge at the end, but first, here’s how to leave a comment and some info on our team and their races:



How to post your “good luck” message:
1.     go to http://noahhoffman.com and open the most recent post
2.     at the end of the post, leave a comment
3.     (optional) sign-up for notification every time Noah posts. He is a terrific blogger and will definitely make you feel like you’re part of the team as they make their final preparations for Sochi! And the posts are kid-friendly 🙂
