SKI THE TRAILS
SKI THE TRAILS
Join Dr. Reich on the Trails!
Dr. Joseph Reich has stepped in as our Physician ambassador this year to continue the tradition of a fun day on the trails to fundraise for our local hospital. Join him on February 26!
Ski the Trails is a story of a friendly competition that became a fundraiser. In 2010, Dr. Phil Dopp and Dr. Jamie Curran, dared each other to ski all of the trails at Hiawatha Highlands. Each of them met the challenge, (which is no small feat at 34 kilometres!) and were left wanting more.
Inspired by their achievement, they set a new goal: why not motivate others and turn their passion for skiing and healthcare into a fundraiser for the hospital?
Ski the Trails has now raised over $150,000 for medical equipment at Sault Area Hospital, and is an event that many look forward to every year!

SKI, SNOWSHOE OR FATBIKE FOR SAHF
Grab your skis, snowshoes or fatbike! It's time to hit the trails in support of SAHF.
This year's Ski The Trails event will take place on February 26, 2023. Sign up online before the event and collect a minimum of $50 in pledges, then head up to Hiawatha Highlands and complete the challenge.
Registration opens at 8:00am at the Kincentre - check in to get your brunch ticket and (if you're one of the first 50 participants to raise $150 or more) collect your awesome Sauce hat!
Conquer one (or all!) of the trails, then make your way up to Algoma's Water Tower Inn for a delicious pancake brunch, and a swim, hot tub, or sauna at the Club Cabana Aqua Spa.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS:
Bequest / WillA bequest is a gift of cash or property included in your will. This can be put in when you create your will, or by adding an appendix to your will. It can be a specific amount, a portion of the residue of your estate (what's left after all debts/expenses are settled), or it can be deferred until after the death of your spouse or partner.
Charitable Gift Annuity / Charitable Remainder TrustYou can make a gift to SAHF and increase your future income at the same time. In both charitable gift annuities (CGAs) and charitable remainder trusts (CRTs), the donor transfers assets to SAHF in exchange for regular income payments. The donor receives a tax deduction and other potential tax savings. The remaining funds transfer to SAHF upon the death of the final income beneficiary. CGAs offer the security of fixed payments to one or two annuitants. CRTs provide variable payments to beneficiaries but can offer a greater return with income for a lifetime, a term of years, or a combination of the two.
EndowmentMoney that is donated to be permanently invested. The interest generated is spent each year and the original investment remains untouched.
Gift of Residual InterestAn arrangement where a donor irrevocably gives real estate or personal property to a charity while retaining the right to use the property for life or for a term of years. Upon the donor’s death or expiration of the term of years, the donor’s right to use the property ceases, and SAHF is given complete control of the property.
Life InsuranceAllows you to make a large gift in the future by paying relatively small premiums now. You can name SAHF as the owner or beneficiary of either a new or existing life insurance policy. Annual payments of life insurance premiums are elligible for a charitable tax receipt.
RRSP / RRIFYou can name SAHF as the beneficiary of your RRSP / RRIF - which means the full fair market value of this investment would be transferred to SAHF upon your death.
SecuritiesYou may choose to give stocks, bonds, futures and options as well as mutual fund shares - to learn more about giving securities, go to "Gifts of Securities".
