Magno race set for March 6


AUBURN — Skiers and snowboarders of all ages and abilities are invited to a day of fun at the 15th annual Tom Magno Memorial Race on Saturday, March 6, at Lost Valley.

The Auburn Ski Association hosts the event and the proceeds will benefit the Ben Hayes Support Fund, established to assist Ben Hayes with medical care and equipment needed as a result of a severe spinal cord injury he suffered in a December 2007 accident.

Family, friends and teammates of two former Edward Little High School skiers, the late Tom Magno (’67) and Ben Hayes (’96), will join for a day of family fun.

Registration will be from 8:30 to 10 a.m. and the race, consisting of two timed runs with a top racer shootout, will start at 10:15 a.m. The $15 entry fee includes a lift ticket from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be prizes, raffles, bib drawings and T-shirts.
