Challenge Cup Committee Pledges $500 To Starting Point Services for Victims of Domestic & Sexual Violence

The Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup Committee met on Monday, February 9, and made the decision to donate $500 of this year’s funds raised from the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup race to Starting Point Services for Victims of Domestic & Sexual Violence. In addition, $10 from every female registered racers fee will go to the cause.

Fittingly, the Committee agreed that this year’s race hats–which all registered racers and race crew members receive–will be purple, which is the symbolic color for domestic violence awareness.

Registration is now open to all male and female ski racers, age 21+. The 42nd Annual Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup Race takes place at Attitash Mountain Resort on Friday, March 20.
