Sledders ready to ride for cancer research

Written by

MILLINOCKET - Snowmobile riders in Millinocket will take to the trails for a great cause later this month.

On Jan. 19, members of the Northern Timber Cruisers will be holding their seventh annual Snowball Ride for Cancer Research.


In the past, the club has raised more than $2,000 for the American Cancer Society.


This year, the Northern Timber Cruisers are trying to keep the money local by donating it to the Oncology Department at Millinocket Regional Hospital.


"My father passed away from cancer. I have a brother who has cancer. As I said before, everyone has a connection to that. I just felt it was something the club could do that was a little bit special," said Steve Campbell, Snowball Ride for a Cure founder.


The club will serve breakfast at 7 a.m. Registration for the ride begins at 8 a.m.
