WinterKids helps children develop healthy lifelong habits through education and fun, outdoor winter activity. We create opportunities for children to be active, vibrant, and healthy in the outdoors.
We help children and families enjoy healthy and fun outdoor winter lifestyles while nurturing a connection to the natural environment – at home, at school, and in the communities in which they live. WinterKids works tirelessly to create opportunities for thousands of kids across Maine to get outside and active in winter through innovative outdoor education and community programs.
In 2023, WinterKids donated to the following organizations:
Our 2024 beneficiaries will receive a team at the Downhill 24 and a cash grant.
Past Downhill 24 Beneficiaries:
Each year, WinterKids chooses a secondary beneficiary for the event in order to support and strengthen health and outdoor programs for kids and families in the Carrabassett Valley area. Each beneficiary gets a team of up to 12 at the Downhill 24 and will keep 50% of all the money their team raises.
Since 2016, WinterKids has donated over $330,000 to these beneficiaries:
The WinterKids Downhill 24 Outdoor Fund was established to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the Downhill 24 (2022) to help get even more kids outside and active across Maine and beyond. This fund will help to address the barriers to healthy outdoor activity, including but not limited to equipment, clothing, and transportation.
