THE DIRKSEN DERBY
Our Goal at the Dirksen Derby is to bring the local and international Snowboard and Sit-Ski communities together for incredibly fun and memorable weekends full of fast race times, strong friendships and fond memories.
Our financial mission at Dirksen Derby is to use our proceeds to benefit selected local and national Non-Profits, as well as supporting individuals including our long-time friend and inspiration, Tyler Eklund.
Since our first Dirksen Derby event at Mt. Bachelor in 2007, we have had over 5000 competitors and assisted in raising over $300,000 dollars for our community, our environment and our health.
Financial beneficiaries of Dirksen Derby events have included: Oregon Adaptive Sports, Protect Our Winters, Democracy Engine, NAACP, Central Oregon Avalanche Association, Tyler Eklund, The Walker family, and The Ortega family.
The Dirksen Derby is also a proud member of 1% for the Planet.
