FAQs:

How does the fundraising work?   Click on the registration button above, sign into your DREAM account or create a new one.  It will then take you to our online fundraising platform.  Customize your fundraising page to tell your story and why DREAM is important to you.  SHARE SHARE SHARE your page on social media & with family and friends.

Can I solicit pledges per lap or vertical foot that I ski?  We are keeping it simple and having all fundraisers collect only flat donations to DREAM prior to the event. You are welcome however to build your fundraising campaign around your personal goal of vertical feet.

 How do the teams work? Teams are open to any size and collection of individuals.  Teams increase your ability to fundraise; teams can be a business, a family, group of friends, etc.  One person has to be the “captain” and create/claim the team page.  Teams will be competing for most funds raised and most vertical feet skied, the bigger your team the better your chance to win!

Can I fundraise offline?  Yes! Supporters can mail donations to DREAM at PO BOX 4084, Whitefish, MT 59937.  We will still credit this donation to your fundraising page to show your total amount raised.  Make sure they note Shred-A-Thon with their donation.  

Can non-independent adaptive skiers participate?  Please contact us and we will work with you to arrange an instructor/volunteer to assist on the day of the event.  Like our lessons, there is limited availability.
