Rebeske's Double Down (hill) Challenge

Double-Down: Big Hearts, Two Skis, and a Mission

The Downhill Derelicts are riding for Veterans. We’re once again teaming up with the Whistler Adaptive Sports Program, a non-profit group that supports sport for life by breaking down the financial, physical and social barriers for individuals with disabilities.

Your Big Heart - 2x the power!

So to you I say congratulations on teaming up with the only campaign that lets you “double down (hill)” on your generous support. For every penny you pledge to support Ben, he’ll match it - doubling your impact! Support Ben in his quest to stumble, slide, and even body roll clumsily down these slopes to make our goal, and he will automatically match your contribution penny for penny. Don’t miss this chance to double your giving power.

How it works…

This year’s funds raised will be specifically directed to WASP’s programs and activities focused on Veterans. Over the last two years, thanks to your past generous contributions we’ve raised $55,000 for Whistler Adaptive Sports Program. This year our group goal is to raise $45,000 which enables WASP to engage many Veterans in their life-changing programs. I’m asking you to support our 2019 Downhill Challenge in which I am teaming up with as many as 40 other skiers and snowboarders to raise the most funds. You can support my campaign by pledging any amount per 100-vertical feet I ski during the five-day ski-a-thon. You can also opt to make a one-time flat donation.

Depending on your tax deduction objectives, one-time donations are tax-deductible immediately and a pledge will be calculated and effective as of March 17, 2019. Regardless of your option, I pledge to earn every penny we raise with sweat, grit, and knowing that what we are doing together is a small sacrifice compared to those made by the veterans we’re riding for.

Follow my fundraising progress on the Today We Ride Challenge leaderboard.

Examples of pledge calculations:

· ($0.02 per 100-vertical feet) x (100,000 vertical feet skied) = $20 donation

· ($0.05 per 100-vertical feet) x (120,000 vertical feet skied) = $50 donation

· ($0.10 per 100-vertical feet) x (100,000 vertical feet skied) = $100 donation

· ($0.25 per 100-vertical feet) x (100,000 vertical feet skied) = $250 donation

Thank you for your generosity!
