|Raise Funds for Cancer|
|March 4/2017, Saturday|
|Skiers and snowboarders from Northern BC will be hitting the slopes on March 4, 2017 at Powder King to raise funds to fight cancer as part of the annual Slopes for Hope.|
|This is a family friendly ski-a-thon in which participants attempt to ski or board the vertical distance of Mount Everest in one day (29,029 feet). Participants can sign up as individuals for a personal challenge, or in teams and split the distance between team members. Come up with a team name and challenge your friends, family or coworkers!
In 2016, Slope for Hope participants and supporters helped raised over $18,000 in support of the Canadian Cancer Society. These funds were used to aid cancer research, cancer prevention initiatives, and support programs.
