MINIsOnTop Fund Raiser

MINIsOnTop Fund Raiser to Support Two New Hampshire Charities-Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Hampshire and the Mt Washington Observatory

MINIsOnTop event coordinator, Ian Cull, is thrilled to name this year’s beneficiaries of the charitable efforts on behalf of the MINI Cooper owners and families that take part in the annual event held in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The Mt Washington Observatory will receive 6.288% (honoring the mountain’s elevation) of the total raised with the rest going to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Hampshire. MINIsOnTop total charitable efforts in the past have raised over $38,000 and this year’s goal is to break the $50,000 mark.

By raising at least $12,000 it would allow the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Hampshire to grant wishes for New Hampshire children with life-threatening medical conditions as well as help to offset the increased costs of basic scientific research the Mt Washington Observatory is known for world-wide. Since the highlight of the MINIsOnTop event is a sunset run to the summit of Mt Washington it was decided that a percentage of the funds raised deserve to go to the observatory on an ongoing annual basis. MINIsOnTop also decided to focus its efforts on the individual Make-A-Wish Foundations within each of the New England states on a rotating basis assuring that a smile can be brought to at least one child each year by completely covering the average wish expense of $5000 for the child and the family.
