The Race Goes On...
The Race to Winterize typically spans four long weekends between September and December. This year, while our firewood program (staffed by Tribal members) will remain in full swing on Pine Ridge through the fall and winter, volunteer service groups for the 2021 Race to Winterize has been consolidated into one volunteer trip that will be held off the reservation due to Covid related Tribal restrictions on travel and volunteers. This year's service trip will be on December 3 - 6 and is already full.
Race to Winterize trips are free. As such, we provide our volunteers with ways that they may do their own fundraising and strongly encourage them to engage their friends, family and professional network to help offset our costs for offering these trips free of charge. We encourage you to set a FUNDRAISING goal of $500 through your network. Other ways volunteers can give back include adopting a project, spreading the word in their community or making a donation directly to Tipi Raisers.
We will continue to follow our Covid-19 Safety Protocols.
Due to Covid-19, we will be monitoring conditions closely - and will update this page as well as our social media if current Race to Winterize plans change.
The Race to Winterize helps us beat old man Winter!

With Covid related limits on our numbers of volunteers, your donation to the Race to Winterize will be even more important so that we may hire more workers from the Tribe in our efforts to prepare as many families as possible for winter!
