About the Michael & Barbara Peisner Nordic Fund
Established in 2013, The Michael & Barbara Peisner Nordic Fund helps children in greater Portland learn to cross-country ski. Mike was a member of the WinterKids Board of Directors for seven years and served multiple roles on the board, including 2 years as President. The Peisners are avid winter enthusiasts and firmly believe in connecting kids who would otherwise not have the opportunity to try winter sports, recreation, and competition.
Through collaborations with Portland Nordic, Portland Parks & Rec, Oxford Community Services, and Chisholm Nordic Ski Club, and Westbrook XC Ski Club the fund has supported over 100 kids each year through training, equipment, and transportation costs.
