The 15th annual Black Woods Blizzard Tour is over, and the fundraising totals are in.

The tour raised $760,000 for treatment and research to find a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), according to North Coast Communications. The tour has raised more than $5 million since it began.

They said the three-day, 180-participant, 230-mile snowmobile ride through northeastern Minnesota is the largest snowmobile fundraiser in the world, including four co-hosts from the Minnesota Twins: Kent Krbek, Ron Gardenhire, Joe Vavra, and Terry Steinbach.
