We had an incredible time with everyone at our 12th Annual WinterKids License to Chill, presented by Mt. Abram, on Thursday, December 7th!

This year’s event was hosted by Après, in Portland’s East Bayside neighborhood, where guests enjoyed treats from Charcutemarie and Eighty8 Donut Cafe, dinner specials from Meet on the Street Food Truck, Après drink specials, live music by TJ Swan, and emcees Blake & Kelly from the Coast 93.1 Morning show.

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to join us for our live event, and to everyone who bid on items in our silent auction!

Your generous contributions have raised a significant amount of money to be used to promote children’s health and wellness. So, where exactly will this funding go? Let us break it down for you:

Expanding Access: We believe every child should have equal opportunities when it comes to outdoor winter activities. With your donations, we’ll be able to provide financial assistance and scholarships so that more kids can participate in our programs regardless of their economic background.

Program Development: Our team constantly adapts and improves our innovative initiatives to keep kids active during the colder months. The funds raised from WinterKids License to Chill will fuel research, development, and implementation of WinterKids programs like the WinterKids App and a full calendar of events designed specifically for improving physical fitness among children across Maine.

Outreach Efforts: We must spread awareness about the importance of staying active during winter while having fun! Thanks to your support, we’ll be able to expand our outreach efforts by organizing community events like WinterKids Welcome to Winter and the WinterKids Winter Games, focused on educating schools, families, and communities about how they can encourage healthy habits throughout all seasons.
