WinterKids announced as B2B 2018 recipient

The TD Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race has chosen as the 2018 race beneficiary WinterKids, a Maine nonprofit that teaches Maine children to move, learn and explore in the outdoors during winter.

Since its founding in 1997, WinterKids has helped more than 100,000 Maine children to get outside and active with innovative outdoor education programs for preschools and elementary schools statewide. This year marks the organization’s 20th anniversary of WinterKids founding program, the WinterKids Passport, which has afforded thousands of Maine children the opportunity to learn to downhill and cross-country ski, ice skate, snow tube and snowshoe at 50 participating winter sports partners across Maine. In 2016, the organization began serving children in New Hampshire schools.

For more information, visit www.winterkids.org, or find WinterKids on Facebook,Twitter and YouTube.

The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, will provide a $30,000 donation to WinterKids. The TD Charitable Foundation has now donated more than $600,000 to Maine charities over the history of the TD Beach to Beacon.

WinterKids will further benefit from fundraising activities, including the race’s charity bib program.
