The Canadian Cancer Society brings Slopes for Hope Silver Star, on February 22nd, a family friendly ski-a-thon in which participants attempt to ski or snowboard the vertical distance of Mount Everest in one day (29,029 feet). Sign up as an individual for a personal challenge, or put in a team of four and split the distance between team members. Come up with a team name, wear costumes, and challenge your friends, family or coworkers!
There will be an après-event with entertainment and amazing prizes awarded at the end of the day, including the Sir Edmund Hillary Award for the skier or boarder who racks up the most vertical distance!
We ask that participants fundraise in advance to support the Canadian Cancer Society, with a minimum donation to participate of $25 for adults and $10 youth. All participants who raise a minimum of $50/youth and $100/adult will be eligible for a half price lift ticket the day of the event, courtesy of Silver Star Mountain Resort.
Funds raised through the event will help the Society fund vital cancer research, leading prevention initiatives, and compassionate support programs for people facing cancer today.
