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 families affected by cancer.
We also make grants to care institutions and fund research into the positive effects of exercise and altitude and how they can help with cancer prevention and recovery.
On Thursday 9 March, Dr Michael Tossell will attempt to become a World Record Holder by skiing the vertical height of Mount Everest, the World's highest mountain, in just one day!
Michael will attempt the challenge in the Austrian ski resort of Saalbach alongside ski jumping legend Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards!
Michael's challenge is a BIG one. In just one day he intends to ski a vertical height of 29,029 feet or 8,848 metres.
To put this into perspective, that's as high as most airlines fly or the height of 3,400 household staircases!
After a horrible year for close relatives, I know only too well how getting out of hospital for a few days or even hours, with loved ones, to a favoured place, and living in the moment of exercise, sports or games, or just being, can be life-affirming, a relief, a distraction, and an opportunity to enjoy and re-balance relationships, or just to find some moonlight in a black sky.
All donations will be gratefully received. Many thanks!
