Fifth Annual DREAM Adaptive Recreation’s SHRED-A-THON

| March 27, 2024 1:00 AM

A penguin, a cow and a Viking were among those who had a blast at Whitefish Mountain Resort Saturday as they took part in DREAM’s SHRED-A-THON, one of the organization’s biggest fundraisers of the year. DREAM provides year-round outdoor adaptive recreation opportunities to individuals with disabilities.

A Tyrannosaurus rex hiked up the mountain determinedly, despite fierce winds and blowing snow on the top third of the Big Mountain. 

As of Monday morning, the event has raised $60,955. The campaign will remain open until April 6, with hopes of meeting this year’s goal of $65,000. Seventy-six people fundraised and garnered support for DREAM and most of them shredded some vert on Saturday.
