Ski 4 Cancer

Set up by a group of skiers/boarders who have all been affected by cancer, Ski 4 Cancer provides respite breaks for families living with cancer. We also make grants to cancer care centres and fund research into the positive effects of exercise and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Charity Registration No. 1090133


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Rhys & I will be attempting to descend the height of Mt Everest (29,029ft) on skis in just 1 day. We will be undertaking this challenge with a group of fellow skiers in the bid to break a new world record to raise money for Ski 4 Cancer. It will take place on the 11th March 2016 in Austrian ski resort Saalbach. 

I know what you are thinking "They are mountaineers, it will be a walk in the park for them". Well, those who have been lucky enough to see Rhys and I on skis will understand that it's an ambitious challenge for two enthusiastic amateurs!

Ski 4 Cancer is a cancer respite charity, they exist to ease the burden of living with a cancer diagnosis or a recent bereavement. They recognise that the diagnosis affects the whole family and not just the patient. Their programmes reflect this and don't just focus on the cancer patient but the immediate family as well. 

Ski 4 Cancer provides a wide range of respite opportunities for British families living with cancer. From family days to longer holidays in the UK and abroad. They also make grants to UK based palliative care institutions and fund research into the effects of exercise in both preventing the onset of cancer and how it can help people with their recovery after diagnosis. 

This charity is very close to our hearts, as we have, like many lost family and friends to Cancer.
