The Drive for 25 is Coming – We Need Your Help!




The annual Drive for 25 fundraising drive is rapidly approaching, and we need your help to get ready! The theme for this year’s campaign is “We Believe.” The goals of this drive are not only to convey the importance of skiing sport but to also show what the NNF community looks like – so we’re looking for photos of YOU!

It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live or even if you ski. All it takes to be a part of this effort is your belief that Nordic skiing has value and is worth supporting.

Here’s how you can help:

Create an “I Believe” sign

  • Find something that you can write on that is at least the size of a standard sheet of paper or larger.  Be creative! Whiteboards, chalkboards, cardboard; anything works!
  • Create your “I Believe” statement. Using a thick marker or similar, start by writing “I believe in skiing because” and then fill in the rest. Here are some thoughts to keep in mind:
    • What value do you see in sport?
    • What does sport contribute to your community?
    • How has skiing played a significant role in your life or the life of someone close to you?
    • Why is it worthwhile to support skiing?
  • Add this hashtag to the bottom of your sign (if that’s what you’re into):
    • #gonnf
  • Snap a picture of yourself holding your statement towards the camera. Use your background to communicate something about where you are from. Of course, we are grateful for all contributions so do what you can with the time you have.
  • Send your picture to! If you would like, please include this info with your contribution:
    • First name
    • City and/or state
    • Any social media info you’d like to have tagged

Thank you for being a part of the National Nordic Foundation!
