Rolkerski Awareness Day is for APU Nordic Elite Athletes to help bring awareness about rollerskiing and promote safety on the trails and roads of Anchorage in living an active and healthy lifestyle. It’s a day to remind drivers to watch out and drive safely while around roller skiers. Many cross-country skiers in Alaska enjoy rollerskiing and are out on the roads that we share with drivers.
Trail awareness and visibility is equally as important. Each skier will be wearing proper safety gear, high visibility clothing, helmets and other gear to showcase recommended protection in staying safe. Recommendations on rollerski safety rules and tips can be found here https://apunordic.com/roller-ski-safety-rules/
APU Nordic Ski Center will be bringing awareness about “Be Safe Be Seen” in our community. “Be Safe Be Seen” is a program developed by Colaska to bring awareness about being seen on the trails and roads to prevent accidents and injury.
We invite the community to come out and cheer on our athletes. If you see an APU Nordic Elite Member on the trail on June 1st, post a photo on Facebook or Instagram and tag APU Nordic Ski Center. Your photo could be picked as the lucky winner of an APU Nordic Ski Center Buff or High Visibility blink lights!
We need your help to raise enough support for our program members to reach their goal. Support the team with your donation now to help the team ski 1,000 Kilometers and achieve their goal as a team!
