Easter Seals is proud to celebrate over 35 years of community commitment, dedicated to Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids.Sioux Lookout, Hudson, Red Lake Snowarama 2018

Snowarama combines winter fun and community spirit, as participants collect pledges in support of Easter Seals kids. Famous wrestler Whipper Billy Watson started Snowarama in 1975, raising over $130,000 in its first year with 12 events across Ontario.

This year, the annual Sioux Lookout-Hudson, Red Lake Snowarama event is on January 26th, 2019. The Event starts at the Ojibway Power Toboggan Association Clubhouse, 108 Abram Lake road for registration at 9:00 am. followed by a ride to Dryden for lunch before returning to the clubhouse.

Riding in our event is the Lac Seul Police Service, Railside Sports and Marine, Lakeside Marina, Red Lake Marine Products and KcKinstry Chrysler.

Funds raised at the Sioux Lookout-Hudson, Red Lake Snowarama will help provide children with physical disabilities with essential mobility and communication equipment, as well as summer camping opportunities at Easter Seals’ two fully accessible camps. It can cost families up to $40,000 a year to raise a child with a physical disability and most families can’t do it on their own. Your support is greatly appreciated.

A huge thank you goes out to all the participants, pledgers, and sponsors for making this event possible.
