Ski for the Key at Swedetown Trails to benefit Trails and Omega House Feb. 8

CALUMET -- Come on out to Swedetown Trails for Ski for the Key (formerly Ski for the Heart) this Saturday, Feb. 8.

This is a fundraiser to support Omega House hospice and Swedetown Trails. Ski or snowshoe at your own pace and then come on in to enjoy some food and a nice social occasion. Snacks will include Co-op Chili, cornbread and much more.

Though the name has changed, the format of the event remains the same: participants will collect pledges in advance of the event for each kilometer skied or snow-shoed between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8. Participants raising more than $50 will receive a beautiful cotton long-sleeved t-shirt. Prizes will be awarded to participants who raise the most money and who ski the most kilometers.

Register in the Chalet any time after 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, and turn in your envelope before 2 p.m. Enter as a team or an individual. Many prizes.

If you're not available Saturday, you can ski or snowshoe today, Feb. 6, or tomorrow, Feb. 7. Ski or snowshoe for up to 5 consecutive hours on a single day; record the date, time and distance on your collection envelope; and turn it in to your team captain.
