Jasper Junior Olympics & Find the Common Thread
2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019
For the last 4 years we have been supporting a Jasper Charity called Find the Common Thread Foundation. A charity for auto-immune diseases, started for Marta Rode. Over the years JJO shared the weekend with their annual Foundations PJ Ski Day, so a few years back we had the Dream Teamers ski in PJ’s to support the foundation and we have continued supporting the foundation by offering $1 for every JJO racer. It has been a way for the JJO”s to give back to the community and support a charity close to the Marmot family.
From the archives:
“Find the Common Thread” Foundation is a group of like minded individuals working to raise awareness for autoimmune diseases and help in the efforts to eradicate one of the costliest yet least talked about disease groups of our time. TOGETHER we can make a difference. Apart we will just continue to spend time, money and effort to keep status quo unchanged. Together we can change the world.”
On March 3rd 2018 our U6 DreamTeam athletes will be racing at Marmot Basin on School House supporting Find The Common Thread. Join us to watch and cheer on our 4 & 5 yr olds with special guest Jasper the Bear at 10:30am.
Bell presentation will take place at 2pm on the lower deck of Marmot Lodge along with a Check Presentation to Marta Rode and Find the Common Thread on behalf of the Jasper Junior Olympics.
