Welcome to Ski 4 Cancer!

Ski 4 Cancer was set up by a group of skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts who have either recovered from cancer, or have lost a friend or close relative to cancer.

Ski 4 Cancer provides alpine based respite days and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of sport (e.g. skiing) and how it can help both prevent cancer and assist in recovery post diagnosis.

As a cancer respite charity with a sporting focus, we provide relief from the difficulties of living with cancer. Join our snow-sports community and help people living with cancer at the same time.

If you ski or snowboard, do it 4 Cancer!
