Dear friends,

As of today we have raised $12,326 towards our goal of $40,000! Thank you! We have 22 days to meet our goal and we need your help.

I would like to share a note with you that I received few days ago from a teacher in WI.

"SOCHI" Mittens


Free gift of "SOCHI" mittens with your donation of $100 or more!

"Thanks to all of you for your hard work in making skiing a possibility for the students at our school!  We are looking forward to the opportunity to give them an alternative recreational activity this winter."

Would you like to see elementary school children experience Nordic skiing just like they get introduced to basketball, football and soccer? CXC has a commitment from 16 elementary schools around the Midwest to introduce our sport in physical education classes, recess and/or after school programs.

We have excited teachers and school coordinators, a step-by-step teaching manual, local ski clubs ready to assist with volunteers and simple-to-use Nordic skis suited for fun.

We need your support to complete this program: $1, $5 or $50 will help us get kids on skis. With a $100 donation or more you will get a special gift from Team USA - "SOCHI" mittens.

Together we can make a difference. Please help develop cross-country skiing generation by generation!

Our Story

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.
