THANKS TO THE COMMUNITY THAT WAS BUILT AROUND THE GESTURE OF A HIGH FIVE AND FRIENDS SPONSORING FRIENDS FOR 25 CENTS A LAP, THE 6TH ANNUAL ARCADE BELTS’ MOTHERSHIP CLASSIC RAISED $38,000 FOR INDIVIDUALS AND VETERANS WITH LIFE-CHANGING INJURIES. PLUS we had over 90 people tune into the virtual event!
THE MOTHERSHIP CLASSIC IS A PLEDGE-DRIVEN EVENT HELD EACH SPRING ON THE ICONIC KT-22 CHAIRLIFT. PARTICIPANTS GATHERED PLEDGES TO BENEFIT #HIGHFIVESATHLETES prior to the event but due to COVID-19, the on hill portion of the event was cancelled and instead we went virtual on Instagram Live TO ENABLE “SOCIAL DISTANCING”.
With that being said, we are extremely proud of our community for coming together and making this event a success! Below are testimonials from after the virtual instagram live awards show.
We are all bummed not to ski KT today. We got some donations. Next year we will be back and will get more donations, can’t wait.
Wahoooo! So stoked I participated and thanks to the matching was able to raise over $1K.
I hope you all are hanging in there! These are strange times. Kate and I really wish we were slaying KT on our skinny sticks with you all today! It was our favorite day of the year last year. I'll get on and donate today and see if I can rally some others for you as well.
Great job with the virtual Mothership, certainly a challenge to figure out what to do, but it was great fun.
Thank you!! I’m so glad you were able to make this virtual.
Thank you for putting this together! It was sweet to see all of the supporters on Instagram Live.
WE ARE A COMMUNITY OF HUMANS THAT WANT TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF OTHERS, THANK YOU FOR BEING A MEMBER. ENJOY THE VIDEOS and award results FROM THE EVENT AND SEE YOU NEXT YEAR FOR THE 7th ANNUAL EVENT AT SQUAW ALPINE.
HIGH FIVE TO YOU ALL!
