Meet Snickers, 2015 Chilimania mascot!

Dear Chilimania,

I wanted to take some time today to thank you for voting for me to be the new mascot. I cannot tell you how excited I am.

My parents always tell me how much fun they have at Chilimania and now I know why! And what really makes it so special is that the funds go to help local students further their education, which is a cause I care very much about!

When I ran to the finish line with my mom and heard you announce my name and everyone clapped and cheered – oh man! That was just about the most awesome thing ever!

I can’t wait to share a bit of my life with you all throughout this year while representing Chilimania with my big smile.

So, Chilimania, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Smiles for miles,

Australian kelpie mix rescue, age 11.5
