FARMINGTON — This year’s Sugarloaf Charity Summit kicks off with the Snowshoe Shuffle at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 30. Proceeds from Charity Summit events benefit the Maine Cancer Foundation and the Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center, according to a news release.

According to organizers if you can walk, you can showshoe. The shuffle route is about an hour-long, gentle route through beautiful trails at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center, offering spectacular views of Sugarloaf mountain.

Individuals are welcome and teams of coworkers, family, and friends are encouraged to join in on the fun. Registration is $25 per person and includes a day pass to the Outdoor Center. Costumes are welcome and a tradition. Children younger than 12 are free.

The Sugarloaf Charity Summit, which will include the Sugarloaf Charity Ball on Jan. 24, raised more than $180,000 last year, according to the release. Now in its 15th year, Summit organizers hope that after this season’s events the collective total will exceed two million dollars.
