The Financial Communications Society (FCS), in partnership with Stowe Mountain Resort, is proud to present the 2017 Race for Kids.

With so many leading marketers gathering for this legendary event, the core of the weekend will be a series of "Fireside Forums" – panel discussions on the business of marketing communications. With our annual charity ski event as a backdrop, this Summit will provide an intimate setting for networking and the sharing of relevant ideas and industry information. Our content driven presentations will focus on digital and social media, mobile and tablet advertising, international marketing and more.

2017 marks the 18th year that Race for Kids will raise money for three important charities: Downey Side, Hope & Heroes | Columbia University, and The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Vermont. The event attracts ski buffs and winter revelers from the financial marketing, advertising and media communities and their friends and families.

Together we've raised over $2,200,000 since 2000!

The "weekend" starts on Thursday evening and lasts through Sunday morning, with the Race on Saturday morning. In addition to our “Fireside Forums” you will have plenty of time to ski, relax with your friends, network with industry colleagues, and just sit back and toast the beauty of Vermont in January. Even if you don't ski, there's a full list of “things to do” off the slopes. For 2016, we also have two days of events for kids so bring the family.

So if you're looking to kick off the New Year in a special way or if you're just itching to show off your stuff, register today for Race for Kids 2017.
