Prairie Women On Snowmobiles (PWOS) - Volunteers
Wadena, Saskatchewan CANADA

Prairie Women On Snowmobiles are volunteers who focus attention on breast cancer and the recreation of snowmobiling. The PWOS organized in 2000, when a breast cancer survivor, who was an avid snowmobiler, and her friend came up with an idea that developed into the Ride for Breast Cancer. Prairie Women On Snowmobiles' mission is to promote provincial events designed to promote breast cancer awareness and the recreation of snowmobiling as well as to raise funds for breast cancer research. Each year from 2001-2009 a group of 10 core riders, a pit crew and the executive ride a planned route, about 1800 km, over 8 days. In nine Missions, over $1.2 million has been raised in Saskatchewan for Breast Cancer Research. A different snowmobile route is ridden each year, visiting approximately 34 communities and in the past nine (9)years, these women have exposed snowmobiling to over 300 urban and suburban communities. Numerous sleds and riders join in throughout the ride. The group also prides themselves on its safety record. In 2008, PWOS received the Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association's President's Award for their diligent work in raising awareness and promoting safe and fun snowmobiling. Its President, Daphne Wickstrom, received the Volunteer Snowmobiler of the Year award. Since the group was founded, it has maintained a steady membership and maintains its website, www.prairiewomen.ca,opens external (non-ISHOF maintained) web link which profiles names and backgrounds of each rider.
