Kath and Andy's Everest Challenge!

Ski 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Ski 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of respite breaks for British families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. skiing) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

In March 2018, Kathryn Edwards and Andy Dunsfold will attempt to ski the height of Mount Everest to raise funds for Ski 4 Cancer.

As an advanced skier, Andy will attempt to ski the vertical height of Everest in one day whereas Kath will attempt to achieve the distance over two days.

Their challenge is a BIG one. The world's highest mountain is 29,029 feet or 8,848 metres high!

To put this into perspective, that's as high as most airlines fly or the equivalent height of 3,400 flights of household staircases!

Kath and Andy will be undertaking the challenge in Saalbach (Austria) to raise funds for Ski 4 Cancer.

Kath & Andy commented:

"This is going to be a very tough challenge but it's for a great cause. We've known a lot of people who have been affected by cancer... this is for them.

If you're able to sponsor us to complete this mammouth challenge, we would be very grateful indeed.

Thank you."
