Dare Mighty Things

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." -Teddy Roosevelt

One Warm Coat

Strafford, NEW HAMPSHIRE--aR is very excited to announce a new partnership with One Warm Coat to help get warm coats to local people in need. At each of our snowshoe races we will collect coats to be given directly to local agencies who have been identified as willing to accept these donations and get them to people in the most need. Donating a coat couldn't be any easier. aR will be collecting clean, gently used coats and jackets as part of the One Warm Coat community service project. Coats of all shapes sizes are welcome. One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults. The program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets that you no longer need. “More people than ever need help these days. I am proud of the thousands of coat drive organizers whose creativity and generosity of spirit are making a real difference in their own communities.” commented Sherri Wood, President and National Coordinator for One Warm Coat. Our first coat drive will take place during our January 23, 2010 Pooh Hill Snowshoe Scramble at King Pine & Purity Spring Resort. You can drop off your donated coats right at our pre-race registration. Please join us in our effort to make sure everyone has a warm coat this winter.

One Warm Coat is national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute the coats free to people in need. More than one million coats have been provided to those in need at no cost since its inception in 1992.
