I am riding to support the mission and vision of Easterseals Michigan, which is to change the way the world degines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people's lives every day.
For Women Only (FWO) is an annual snowmobile ride and winter getaway weekend, that has been hosted by Easterseals Michigan for 30 years. Since its inception in 1987, thousands of women snowmobile enthusiasts have raised more than $2.25 million in support of Easterseals' programs.

Why Am I Riding?
I am riding to support the Easterseals Michigan programs and services that help over 10,500 Michigan individuals and families. One of those individuals is Silas.
Silas Missad Reifler, age 5, is the 2016 Child Ambassador for the For Women Only ride and weekend. Silas was diagnosed with down syndrome and lives with his dad, Jon, his mom, Heather, and his brother, Max, in East Grand Rapids. Silas loves reading with his dad, dancing and singing with his mom, and playing hide and seek with his brother. His fine motor skills were extremely delayed and he needed private therapy. The family chose Easterseals Michigan Children's Developmental Therapy Services, which offer speech, language, occupational, and sensory integration therapies. Because of Silas' progress, his parents are staying in the program, and feel that Easterseals Michigan will play a pivotal role in Silas' life for years to come.
Please come and join us in celebrating Silas, and all of the other individuals and fmailes that Easterseals Michigan serves and supports at For Women Only by signing up to ride, or by making a donation to a rider.
