Riders who participate will enjoy the seven-day ride touring northern Michigan, be a part of the Opening Ceremony at the SOMI State Winter Games, and will have gas and most meals provided. Riders must meet a fund raising commitment to participate. Anyone interested can contact the Wertz Warriors at or at (586) 725-9660.


Since the first ride in 1982 the warriors have traveled more then 1,000,000 miles on their snowmobiles and

have raised over $9.9 million, and completely fund the Special Olympics of Michigan Winter Games.


During the 2017 ride, the Wertz Warriors hope to raise $500,000, and will have nearly 50 snowmobile

riders on the trails.
