MEDINA, Minn. (Oct. 14, 2013) – Polaris® Snowmobiles is partnering with Pink Ribbon Riders® this season, supporting the group in providing financial assistance to breast cancer patients by donating a 2014 Polaris 800 Switchback® Pro-R LE SnowCheck Edition snowmobile as the grand prize in a fundraising raffle.
Pink Ribbon Riders is selling raffle tickets at snowmobile events across the snowbelt all winter, and the winning ticket will be drawn February 15, 2014.
“We are honored to be partnering with Pink Ribbon Riders this season. We are proud to be able to provide financial assistance to women and men battling breast cancer,” said Polaris Snowmobiles Marketing Manager Andy Kroll. “By easing the financial strain, Pink Ribbon Riders help these courageous individuals focus on winning their battle against this terrible disease that has touched virtually all of our lives.”
The directors of Pink Ribbon Riders describe the group as a small, grass-roots, volunteer-driven organization, but its efforts can have positive, far-reaching effects on the lives of those battling breast cancer. Pink Ribbon Riders raises funds through snowmobile rides, community fundraising events, generous donations, and special projects such as the Polaris snowmobile raffle.
The organization invites breast cancer patients to apply for financial awards, and provides patients with $500 gift cards they can use toward the costs of treatment or ancillary costs (lodging, food, travel expenses, etc.) that are part of seeking treatment. Pink Ribbon Riders, a 501 C(3) not-for-profit organization, currently strives to assist breast cancer patients in several snowbelt states where its fundraising is focused.
Details about the Polaris snowmobile raffle, Pink Ribbon Riders and its ongoing fundraising are available at www.pinkribbonriders.com, and on the group’s Facebook page.
