SALT LAKE CITY — Widely known through the cross country ski community, the annual Drive for 25 is the most successful grassroots fundraising effort in American ski sport and the principle fundraising engine for the National Nordic Foundation. This year’s Drive for 25 builds on the success initially created by U.S. coaches Matt Whitcomb and Peter Vordenberg who challenged the skiing community to support itself in a single-day effort in 2011.
The 2015 Drive for 25 (D25) begins on October 1st and extends through November 12th. This year’s drive explores motivation and asks, “What does drive look like?” Insights from current junior racers, World Cup veterans, coaches and industry insiders promise a motivational look at what pushes skiing in the U.S. forward. Participation is a goal of the Drive for 25 with a goal of acquiring at least a $25 donation from every state.
Proceeds support cross country and Nordic Combined pillar projects, key development opportunities to help skiers reach their goals.
