Four riders started the idea of an annual fundraising snowmobile ride when they rode their sleds around Lake Superior in 1999. Randy Bannor, Larry Bannor, Greg Sorenson and Dennis Nelson received $15,000 in monetary contributions, which were used to help those fighting Lou Gehrig's Disease (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis).
A year later, a group of dedicated people banded together to form what is now the Black Woods Blizzard Tour. That same year, Black Woods Bar & Grill jumped on board as title sponsor of the annual event. In its first year, 38 riders raised $46,000. Twenty-four years later, 265 riders raised $1.9 million, bringing the lifetime event total to $17.3 million.
With your help, funds from the Black Woods Blizzard Tour go to ALS organizations that provide services empowering people with ALS to be more independent, help their full time family caregivers. Funding also will goes towards local ALS research.
