In the spirit of our mission, we are proud to host the first annual Alnoba ‘Race for Change’: Winter Snowshoe 5k on Saturday March 2nd. Our goal is to use this event to fundraise for likeminded organizations and bring awareness to the hard work that non-profits are doing in our community. Each racing participant will be able to choose the non-profit of their choice that they wish to support (folks can choose during registration) and a portion of the sales will go to them. Feel free to donate more if you have the passion and the means!
Here are the partner non-profits and the projects they are raising funds for:
Southeast Land Trust: Will you help conserve Barker’s Farm? Landowner and farmer Edie Barker and her daughter Forrest have chosen to partner with SELT and the Town of Stratham to permanently conserve their family farm. And by agreeing to sell the easement for just 60% of its appraised fair market value, the Barker’s are joining with SELT to exclaim: This is a place worth saving! With your gift, Barker’s Farm will be forever conserved as a working, thriving farm.
Sustainable Seacoast: Sustainable Seacoast is working on building or obtaining a multi tap portable hydration station. The hydration station will be one of the tools we use to work with events to help them reduce their single-use plastic and overall impact on the environment. By providing chilled, filtered water to participants and encouraging them to bring their own refillable water bottles or providing them with compostable cups for a donation. The intention with this offering is to eliminate packaged water for profit and single-use plastic water bottles at community events.
350NH.org: Resist the granite bridge pipeline and build a renewable energy economy, empower our community to take action on climate and train young people to be climate activists and leaders.
Center for Wildlife: The Center for Wildlife is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to build a sustainable future for wildlife in our community through medical treatment, rehabilitation, educational outreach, research, and conservation activities. They are currently raising funds for the construction of their new facility!
The Forest Society: Trees Not Towers! Bury the Northern Pass! The Forest Society has legal and ethical obligations to defend conserved lands from unnecessary commercial development like Northern Pass. To ensure that the legal process does not ignore those who care deeply about New Hampshire’s scenic landscapes and conserved lands, today we need to raise $750,000 for the Trees Not Towers Defense Fund.
Post Action Landfill Network: The Post-Landfill Action Network cultivates, educates, and inspires the student-led zero waste movement. We inform students about the waste crisis and equip them with the necessary skills and resources to implement solutions to waste in their campus communities. PLAN empowers our generation to be changemakers. They are currently raising funds to support their critical internship and fellowship programs.
Alnoba’s home sits on over 450 acres of woods, hills and pasture hosting 10+ miles of trails which sections will be used as our course.
Be sure to join us after for a post-race celebration in the Alnoba Great Room where we will be serving lunch, beer and you can get a chance to meet the folks from the partner non-profits!
Special thanks to Revision Energy for being our race partner sponsor!
