How can I become a volunteer?
The success of all Komen New England events depends heavily on the support we receive from our volunteers, both before the event and the day of the event. There are many ways you can get involved, for more information contact Linda Maness at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is this event subject cancellation due to weather?
Komen New England (as well as Grafton Trails & Outdoor Center) reserves the right to cancel or change the date or location of the Komen New England Snowshoe - Vermont in its sole discretion, including in the circumstance of extreme weather. Of course, we do not expect this to be necessary. However, it is January in Vermont. Please dress accordingly, in layers and be prepared for cold!
What if I can not attend the Snowshoe Vermont, or you cancel the event, may I get a refund? Per Komen New England event policy, "All registration fees and donations are non-refundable and non-transferable."
Does my participation require fundraising?
You are not required to fundraise, but we do encourage all participants to fundraise above the entry fee. Just Imagine the IMPACT - If every Snowshoer raises just $100 in addition to their registration fee, we would bring in an additional $50,000 to support Vermont and New Hampshire women in need! Reminder, a minimum of $50 in fundraising earns a registered snowshoer a long-sleeved event tee-shirt.
Does the money raised stay right here in our community?
Yes! 75% of the net income from Snowshoe - Vermont stays right here in our community to fund vital breast cancer health education and breast cancer screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25% supports Susan G. Komen’s national research grants program.
Where do I send donations?
Checks and Money orders (please do NOT mail cash) should be made payable to: Komen New England (memo line: Participant name and Snowshoe Vermont). Please mail your donations , with a completed fundraising form, to: Susan G. Komen New England, 1009A Depot Street, Manchester Center, VT 05255.

Is there a deadline for fundraising?
All donations on your behalf that are received by Janaury 25, 2020, 6 PM, will be used to determing fundraising awards. Any donations received subsequent to that date will be credited to your participant center, but not in the determination of awards.
When will I receive my fundraising awards?
