Slopes for Hope Ski-a-Thon

"Slopes for Hope" an "Everest-Style" ski-a-thon in which individuals or teams attempt to ski or board the vertical of Mount Everest in one day
 A few months ago I heard about this event?? So I entered a team online, rounded up a few of my nephews and headed to Powder King Ski Resort about 2 hours away. We began our fundraising efforts ahead of time using the online donation system and the old fashioned start with your family and move outwards to your friends, neighbors & co-workers. Much to our surprise we raised $1615.00!!! All funds raised went to the Canadian Cancer Society. We were awarded the "Highest Fundraising Team". This is a great event and something the entire family (all ages) can participate in. The youngest  participant was 2.5 yrs old the oldest 66 yrs of age. This was the first event of this type ever held in our area and it looks like it will be an annual event!! So get ready for March 2015! On our travels home all we could talk about was doing it again next year!!!  A "Family Day" for a Cause.
