Ski 4 Cancer makes a donation to Kinderkrebshilfe in Salzburg

Ski 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a group of skiing and boarding enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member to cancer, Ski 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of alpine respite breaks for families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to cancer care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise and altitude and how they can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Kinderkrebshilfe Donation

Ski 4 Cancer has made a 10,000 Euro donation to Kinderkrebshilfe, a cancer centre dedicated to helping children with cancer in the Salzburg region of Austria.

The announcement comes the day before this year's Everest Challenge which will take part in Saalbach (Austria) on 16 March 2018.

The challenge will be to ski or snowboard the height of Mount Everest (8,800 metres) in support of families living with cancer.

Commenting on the announcement, Guy Wimpory of Ski 4 Cancer said "Last year in Saalbach we raised some 20,000 Euros from our World Record attempt in partnership with the Saalbach Tourist Board.

The challenge was to ski the height of Mount Everest and over 200 people took part and most were either English, German or Austrian.

Unfortunately, we didn't get the World Record as the weather conditions were awful but we did raise a huge amount of money to help families cope with the life changing effects of a cancer diagnosis.

We are delighted to make a donation to the Kinderkrebshilfe in Salzburg who perform some truly amazing work in support of local families where a child is ill.

We would also like to thank the resort of Saalbach and Skiline for their support in recent years and for making our Everest Challenge events such a success."
