A portion of race proceeds go to C.I.D.E.R. and RunVermont Youth Programming, serving over 1,000 in Vermont communities C.I.D.E.R.’s mission is to develop and foster resources that enable the people of Grand Isle County to live in their community with dignity. C.I.D.E.R. accomplishes this by providing direct services and collaborating with other individuals and groups. C.I.D.E.R. feels a special responsibility to elders and persons with disabilities. We've embraced C.I.D.E.R.'s mission for a lot longer than the 10 years we've been producing the Island Vines race and are so pleased to be able to help their efforts in a small way.
