Dear friend of CXC,

John and Leslie Taylor have challenged CXC with a matching grant to develop and promote Nordic skiing for all ages and abilities. This is a 2:1 matching grant, so we need to raise $40,000 to leverage the $20,000 from our generous benefactors. This new donor opportunity provides a way for anyone to give back to our sport through CXC Programs. These CXC programs are the backbone of ski development and promotion in the Midwest.

You and our grassroots organization are bound together by a passion for cross country skiing. Please make a donation today and support all of our efforts.

Thank you.
