After accepting the challenge from Dan Ariens, President and CEO of
Ariens, Wine in turn nominated Bahram Akradi, Founder and CEO of
Lifetime Fitness, Michael Guyette, President and CEO of Blue Cross Blue
Shield MN, and the entire Polaris dealer network.
Wine noted in his
video that if 100 Polaris dealers accept the challenge, Polaris will
donate an additional $10,000 towards ALS research.
“Polaris has a long history of giving back and is proud to support
this effort,” said Wine. “We encourage our strong network of dealers to
accept the nomination or donate to an ALS charity.”
Polaris has been involved with the Black Woods Blizzard Tour,
a snowmobile ride to fight ALS, since its inception 15 years ago. Since
then, Polaris employees have raised more than $900,000 for the cause
and are hoping to hit the $1 million mark in 2015.
