James Gambrill's World Record!

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.

On Thursday 9 March, James Gambrill will attempt to set a new World Record by skiing the vertical height of Mount Everest, the World's highest mountain, in just one day!

Their challenge is a BIG one. In just one day they intend 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 equivalent height of 3,400 flights of household staircases!

James will be undertaking the challenge in Saalbach (Austria) alongside Eddie 'The Eagle' to raise funds for Ski 4 Cancer.

James commented:

As many of you know this terrible disease has impacted me personally through the loss of my wife Katy in 2015 and my father previously when I was in my early 20’s.

We all know or have known people affected by cancer. I am doing this challenge to help others going through the same.

If you’re able to sponsor me to complete this mammoth challenge, I would be very grateful.

Many thanks.
