About the organizers:
Jim Kalajian and Andrew Parvel, along with their hard-working crew, have run Mud, Sweat, and Beers for Mt. Holiday since 2007.
As Michigan's third largest mountain bike race, MSB has raised more than $270,000 for Mt. Holiday and many other non-profit organizations that assist in specific duties.
On the first Saturday of every May, MSB attracts 1,000 racers and their families to our area, benefitting dozens of sponsors including a locally owned car dealership, bike shop, and brewery.
We are confident the Great Pumpkin Dash will become not only a cherished Mt. Holiday tradition like MSB, but also an easy, unique way to expose your business.

Again, all proceeds will be donated to Mt. Holiday Ski and Recreation Area, a 501(c)3 non-profit, as well as other local nonprofits and service organizations that help us make race day fun and well-run.

About Mt. Holiday:
Mt. Holiday was formed in 1949 when a group of local businessmen obtained permission to construct a ski run on state owned land. The area was created using volunteers, prison labor, services and donations. In 1985, the area was purchased by Warren Brosch and his wife Sue. The Brosches added two chairlifts, a tube run and a terrain park. After Warren�s death in 1999, Sue Brosch placed the area up for sale. In response to the concern that the area would be sold and developed, a volunteer group formed Mt. Holiday, Inc., a nonprofit corporation to purchase the area. The group set a goal to raise $1.5 million to acquire the area, refurbish it and open to the public. The mission of Mt. Holiday is to provide four seasons of outdoor recreation, build strong minds and bodies in a safe, clean and healthy environment for people of all ages, with a continuing focus on disadvantaged youth.

We thank you for your support!
