Black Woods Blizzard Tour tops $1.3 million

The Black Woods Blizzard Tour once again raised over $1 million dollars to provide support to individuals battling ALS. The three-day snowmobile ride concluded on February 1st at the Celebration Dinner held at Cirrus Aircraft in Duluth, where event organizers unveiled a check with an inspiring total of $1,365,000. Former Minnesota Twins players Terry Steinbach, Kent Hrbek, and Tim Laudner, along with former manager Ron Gardenhire, were among the nearly 250 snowmobilers that participated in the 21st annual Black Woods Blizzard Tour, and who helped put the event fundraising total over the million dollar mark for the third year in a row.

“The passion and the dedication of the riders that participate in this event year after year is something truly special,” said the Black Woods Blizzard Tour board chair David Kolquist. “It’s truly incredible the way that riders who have been doing this for two decades come together with riders that are participating for the first time to raise funds dedicated to battling ALS.”

The Black Woods Blizzard Tour has now raised $12.4 million in its twenty-one year history, and has broken fundraising records almost every year.

“It’s a great testament to our region that this event happens successfully year after year in northern Minnesota,” added Kolquist. “The riders, volunteers, donors, and sponsors are all completely committed to this cause, and the efforts they put forward each and every year to strive for a world without ALS are nothing short of amazing.”
