Ski 4 Cancer accounces new partnership with Ski Weekends

New Ski Weekends Partnership!

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.

Ski 4 Cancer is proud to announce a new partnership with Ski Weekends.

The short break winter holiday specialist has announced a series of planned activities and events with Ski 4 Cancer this winter season.

The collaboration will help to raise money for the charity which in turn will be used to provide winter respite holidays in the mountains for families affected by cancer.

A number of activities are planned including the chance for Ski Weekends guests to stay with legendary ski jumper, Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards - one of Ski 4 Cancer's Patrons - in their new Courchevel 1650 chalet.

During January 2019, £25 of each holiday total will be donated to the charity. Anyone booking any holiday with Ski Weekends will also have the option of including a £2 donation for the charity as well.

Other events are planned, including a 3 Valley’s treasure hunt during March 2019 for any Ski Weekends guests, which will continue to help raise further funds for the charity.

Managing Director of Ski Weekends, Dan Fox, said: “Ski 4 Cancer is a fantastic charity and it’s great to be involved with them and to help raise some money for such a good cause. It also ties in really nicely with the work we are doing with Eddie the Eagle as he happens to be an ambassador for the charity. We are aiming to run lots of activities through the winter and develop this collaboration, hopefully helping in our way to support the charity and make a little difference to those struggling with Cancer”.

Graham Precey, Chair of the 4 Cancer Group said: “We are very excited about this partnership with Ski Weekends which will enable us to give respite breaks to more families next year. We have a long waiting list and this opportunity will give some of those families the chance to create positive family memories and a break from the constant stress of living with cancer. We are very grateful to the Ski Weekends team and their customers for making this possible.”
