Ride Targets Breast Cancer

0

You don’t have to own a snowmobile to help the St. Joe Snow Riders raise money at their annual Breast Cancer Poker Ride.

This year, the club is raffling off a gun. Up for grabs is a Savage AXIS XP .243 pink Muddy Girl rifle with a scope. Tickets are for $5 each or five for $20.

Paula Spooner, who organizes the ride, said tickets are available at the following businesses: the Blue Goose, Idaho Rigging, St. Maries Saw and Cycle, Main Salon, Big River Designs and Get Nailed.

Dale Hill and Claudia Spooner are organizing the St. Joe Snow Riders annual Breast Cancer Run. This year, the club is raffling off a pink rifle. Tickets are available now at area businesses. It is just one way to support the cause even if you don't own a snowmobile.

“People can also call me at 245-4070 if they want tickets,” Ms. Spooner said.

As always, the club will sell sponsorships of pink ribbons that will include the sponsor’s name. Ribbons can also be purchased in memory of someone who has had breast cancer. The laminated signs are placed along the trail and cost $25, Ms. Spooner said.

“The gun raffle is new for the club,” Ms. Spooner said. “Another new thing we are doing is we have also planned a game at one of the stops for $1.”

The gun will be drawn the day of the ride. This year’s event is Feb. 8. Registration is from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Big Eddy.

Hands cost $5 and prizes are awarded for high, middle and low. All hands must be returned to the Calder Store by 5 p.m. There are a total of five checkpoints along the ride with three on the mountain.

More than $16,000 has been raised in the last six years, Ms. Spooner said, and 90 individuals from Benewah County and the Calder, Avery and Clarkia area have benefitted from the money the event has raised.

“The money provides those with breast cancer with prescription vouchers, gas vouchers and nutritional foods vouchers,” Ms. Spooner said.

Apparel is also available. Long-sleeve shirts cost $20, T-shirts are $15, crew sweaters are $25 and hoodies cost $35.

“Mary Skinner at Big River Designs is doing the shirts for us and if you want something else she is pretty versatile,” Ms. Spooner said.
