"24 Hours of Stratton" postponed

STRATTON -- The arctic weather that has gripped the region since late December has forced the postponement of the 24 Hours of Stratton, a round-the-clock skiing event at Stratton Mountain Resort that raises money to help break the cycle of poverty for children living in southern Vermont. Originally scheduled for Jan. 6-7, the event will now be held on March 17-18, organizers have announced.

Launched in 2013, the 24 Hours of Stratton has raised more than $1 million for the Stratton Foundation. Skiiers participate at no cost to themselves, but to ask family, friends, and colleagues to donate to raise at least a minimum requirement. Awards for top individual and top team fundraising, and for top vertical feet and the team vertical relay challenge provide added incentive for giving. Participants ski or snowboard for as long as they wish, from 9 a.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday.

The announcement of the date change was made on the event's website, strattonfoundation.org/24-hours-of-stratton. No further details were available as of press time.
