Snow Camp ski-a-thon
Snow Camp ski-a-thon to be held in Morzine
Snow Camp is the UK's only charity designed to help disadvantaged inner-city youths using snow sports and life skills. For the past two years they have held this 3-day snowsports event that involves skiing or snowboarding a over 150km in 48 hours including a night ski session and a night mountain hike. There is also a celebration party organised by the charity on the last day to commend everyone on the money raised.
The event is open to people of all abilities and is sponsored by Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports. Last year 33 people took part in the event and raised over £30,000 for the charity.
Snow-Camp has grown steadily from supporting just 7 young people in 2003, to supporting over 600 inner-city young people and all funds raised from the event will go towards this work. To find out more about the charity and details on how to enter this event, visit www.snow-camp.org.uk.
