Share Winter Foundation (Share Winter) is a non-profit grantmaking organization working to improve the lives, health, and fitness of youth through winter sports, and create a more diverse, inclusive, and welcoming winter sports community. Share Winter works closely with carefully selected grantees to build efficient, effective, sustainable winter sports programs and pipelines to ongoing winter sports participation. Through our partnerships, we strive to make winter sports accessible to a broader, more diverse community and share winter with 100,000 youth by 2028.
Youth pursue new adventures through Loppet programs. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy trails that we steward in Theodore Wirth Park in partnership with the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board. Athletes of all levels challenge themselves in year-round Loppet events and through our clubs and training classes. The Loppet believes in coming together as a community to get outdoors and embrace adventure for all.
