Welcome to Kurt Martinson's Personal (but not too personal) Page
Welcome to my page!
What is the Black Woods Blizzard Tour? It is the worlds largest snowmobile fundraiser! I have been involved for 12 years and during that time it has grown from about 70 riders to 250! We now raise over $1.3 million each year. As a not for profit group, Never Surrender Inc raises funds which are then used to support other ALS organizations offering programs and services in our region along with funding ALS trails in Duluth. Oh, and we only have 1 paid employee so unlike many other fundraisers with high overhead, the vast majority of your donation goes directly to the cause!
How did I get involved...
No, I didn't have a family member with ALS nor did I even know anyone with the disease. I love snowmobiling and I was told about this event where we can ride for a cause. Ironically, I also helped open the first Black Woods restaurant back in the early 1990's in Two Harbors. So, I signed up and was hooked! Thru this event I got to know people battling ALS and see what it does to them and their families. This has made me even more determined to do what I can to help.
