Maryhill Fire Fundraiser and Freeride – Help the Wolfe Family
Skate or Donate!! Earlier this summer a fire tragically burned the bottom of Maryhill Loops Road and the Wolfe Family home. The Wolfe Family has supported skaters riding Maryhilly through countless Freerides, Festivals of Speed and just straight hiking it. Now is the time to get together and help rebuild their family home and give back a little of what they have done for the downhill community and Maryhill riders.
Maryhill Festival of Speed Go Fund Me Campaign
John Ozman – Terrible news from the Maryhill Museum of Art, Bunny Wolf’s house (bottom of the Maryhill Loops Road) has been destroyed in this fire (link below). It is now time for our community that has been driving past her property so we can skate the beautiful Maryhill Loops Road to step up and help this family in need. This home was all the family had! I will be taking up donations, so if you feel in your heart you would like to help please send a donation.
All proceeds will go directly to the family.
Maryhill Ratz Maryhill She Ride August 15th-16th – Now Open Freeride To All – Rebuilding the Wolfe Family Home Freeride
SPOTS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE EVENT! PLEASE COME OUT AND SUPPORT THE FAMILY!
This is not a normal freeride, this is a fundraiser to help the Wolfe family, members of the Maryhill Ratz for years. The Wolfe’s own the house and property at the bottom of Maryhill and have served participants at the Freerides for many years. If you have had the hot apple cake or the chili at a freeride you have enjoyed the fruits of their labor. On July 2nd their house was completely destroyed by a grassfire and they lost everything.
To help the family out, The Maryhill Ratz are guaranteeing a $5,000 contribution. If 150 people show up, the Ratz will increase the contribution to $7,500 and if 200 people sign up the contribution grows to $10,000!!!
Normally lunch is provided with your entry fee but this time the skaters will have to pay for their lunch to help the family raise even more money.
This is not a race and there are no prizes, spectators or camping. Just a closed hill with hay bales, EMT’s safety workers and shuttles. We will try and get as many runs as possible each day. As you know from previous years, this event happens rain or shine For those wondering, your actual age and skill level is irrelevant, just come out and have a great time and spread the stoke!
Price: $125 plus $8.75 in local tax = $133.75 USD
Full face helmet and Gloves are required! Leathers are recommended! If you don’t have leathers there is an additional $20 fee that can be paid towards the EMT “Road Rash” fund!
