Skijoring for MS brought their show back to Cold Lake and was able to raise $26,700 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
The event was hosted on March 11 at the Cold Lake AG building and saw 38 teams compete in multiple categories such as Sprint, Circuit, and Big Air Freestyle. Other prizes were given out including best crash, best costume, fastest run, and the iron man.
The event started with a pancake breakfast and then moved towards the circuit and sprints ending with the big air freestyle event.
James Purdy, Captain of MS Ain’t Purdy says the event was amazing.
“It went so well. It blew my expectations away. The weather was gorgeous and the spectators were amazing. The AAG society really pulled out all the stops for our event.”
The silent auction also pulled in another 2 thousand dollars on top of the $26,700 raised. Purdy says he is excited to make this an annual event.
“There is no doubt about it. I wish it was longer. It is going to be an annual event and the partnership we have with the Cold Lake AG Society could not be better.”
This year’s goal was met and Purdy has set next year’s goal at $30,000 dollars.
