Latchkey Cup

 

 

Moultonboro, NH: In 1984 the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club wanted to hold a benefit race that would be an annual event. At that time the race was held on Meredith Bay, which is how the name came about. Meredith is known as the Latchkey to the White Mountains. As time went on it was moved to Berry Pond, a smaller body of water in Moultonboro. The club members wanted their fundraising to be dedicated to an organization involved in fighting cancer. Therefore, the Norris Cotton Cancer Center in Lebanon, NH was the logical choice. Over the next 28 years our club donated over $227,000.00 to the Norris Cotton Cancer Center. All of us involved are very proud of this accomplishment. Now the board members and club members have voted to continue our Latchkey Cup tradition, but to give back the money in our local communities. After the Latchkey Cup race we will be reaching out to the local communities to see where the greatest needs are for this years donations.

The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club has again reached out to the Lakes Region community for donations to support this event. In addition to the donations from the ads in our Latchkey Cup Ice Times, the monies raised are from driver entry fees, driver pledge sheets, spectators, and Latchkey Cup souvenirs.

The 2016 Latchkey Cup raised $2,862.50, which brings our 32 year total over $246,487.50. In 2016 we donated a scholarship to a local student, given to five different local families suffering from cancer and other medical conditions. We did this all without being able to hold our race due to lack of ice, thanks to our generous donors of their ads each year

The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club would like to extend their gratitude to everyone for helping us continue with our 33rd Annual Latchkey Cup.

The Latchkey Cup Race is scheduled each year for the last Saturday of January, starting at 10:00 am. Ice permitting.
