Why should you sponsor one, or all, of our events?

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, The 906 Adventure Team’s sole purpose is to make an impact on our community. Unlike those other events, we’re not owned by a publicly-held corporation, or charging $650 for a day of adventure. We’re trying to change lives, not bank account balances.

Our audience vocally support the brands that support our events. Our sponsors often go out of the way to tell us that our racers make an impact on their business.

We could not put on this event without these companies to support us. Each and every one of these groups have a commitment to winter adventure in the U.P. and contribute to make the event into what it is today. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Learn more here.

When you sign up for the Polar Roll mailing list

It’s all about community.

We asked you to #adapt in 2020, and you did. Now we’re asking you to join us and #forge ahead. 2021 is about doing what you do best, making the most of what you have, and getting better every day.

While a lot of races out there are run by for-profit companies, that’s not the case for Marji Gesick, Polar Roll and The Crusher. All of our events are productions of the 906 Adventure Team, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves through outdoor adventure. We don’t have a large staff of people (two, to be exact) or significant overhead, and that enables us to donate a significant portion of race revenues in two ways:

Since 2015, we’ve given back more than $141,000 to the trail-builders of RAMBA, NTN, Sisu Dirt Crews, WinMan and the DCNT. We also support youth adventure programs in three communities and have plans for that number to grow in the near future.

In 2021 we’re building a learning management system to train 150+ volunteer Adventure Leaders, and have our eyes on the future: planning to grow from 500 youth served to thousands. Together with your continued support and a network of dedicated partners, we will connect kids with each other, their communities, and give them a healthy alternative to time spent on devices.
