Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Health Care recently teamed up to contribute $1,000 to support two upcoming events at Minocqua Winter Park, the Wolf Tracks Rendezvous and the Squirrel Hill Pursuit Nordic Ski Races.
The 2nd annual Wolf Tracks Rendezvous Feb. 2 at Minocqua Winter Park is a 42k Nordic ski marathon. The Squirrel Hill Pursuit, formerly the Lakeland Loppet, is March 2. These events draw skiers from throughout the Midwest.
The joint contribution from Ministry Health Care and Marshfield Clinic will support family-oriented races for skiers of all ages, and maintenance of Minocqua Winter Park’s trails and equipment.
“We’re dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles, and this contribution helps support physical activity during the winter months,” said Sheila Clough, president, Ministry Howard Young Health Care. “Cross country skiing at Winter Park allows our community members and tourists to remain active and improve their overall health and well-being.”
“We value the support from organizations like Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Health Care,” said Jim DiDomenico, executive director, Minocqua Winter Park. “We appreciate their endorsement of staying active during the winter months and encouraging healthy lifestyles.”
“We feel it is important to support Winter Park,” said Rick Clark, administrator, Marshfield Clinic Minocqua Center. “All ages can participate in cross-country skiing and other outdoor activities there, and this helps improve the health and well-being of all of us who live in the Northwoods.”
Minocqua Winter Park is a not-for-profit town park operated by the Lakeland Ski Touring Foundation that provides quality silent sport experience for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages through the protection and maintenance of their trail system.
