The MADD chapter of Kimberley/Cranbrook is looking to raise their profile and some funds with an event planned  for Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013.

The first annual Krista Lynn MADD Dash will be a fun day of skiing and snowboarding says Katryna Sigurdson of MADD, with games, a barbecue lunch, door prizes, silent auction and more.

Tickets, which include lift passes are $80 for adults, $65 for  youth 13-17, $50 for under 12 and $30 for those who have annual passes or just want to come support and not ski.

For information and pledge forms, you can contact Sigurdson at 250-432-9590. Tickets are available in Cranbrook at Core Fitness and Bridge Interiors, and  in Kimberley at Bear’s Eatery and Guest Services at Kimberley Alpine Resort.

MADD Kimberley/Cranbrook officially launched its first ever red ribbon campaign in the two communities on November 1.
