JDRF joins the Birkie for a third year as its official charity partner in 2015! Since 2012, Birkie Skiers for Cures has raised $120,000 for JDRF and its mission to fund type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. The 2015 Birkie Skiers for Cures program will once again be supporting JDRF. Consider joining Team JDRF to help us make it the biggest fundraising year yet!

JDRF will be offering 50 “Charity Registration Slots” for the Birkie. By fundraising a minimum of $500 for JDRF, you will receive an entry in the 2015 American Birkebeiner or Kortelopet, a JDRF cross-country ski hat, and be entered into a drawing to win a trip to the 2016 Norwegian Birkebeinerrennet (includes three nights lodging for two people, air travel allowance up to $1000 per person). JDRF will also offer fundraising opportunities for skiers who register directly with the Birkie. Registration will open on June 2, and the JDRF fundraising website will open in June as well.
