Slopes for Hope wants your participation

Local celebrity, and recent X-Games bronze medalist in Mono Ski X, Josh Dueck will be attending the Slopes for Hope opening reception on Friday night, February 17 at the Stemwinder.

Saturday February 18, 2012 is the second annual Slopes for Hope event at the Kimberley Alpine Resort. Last year the event raised over $40,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

The night before the event teams gather at the Stemwinder to receive their registration packages, hand over any last minute funds, and kick off the event. This year Josh Dueck will be attending registration night to say a few words and to show his award winning film “The Freedom Chair”.

“We are so glad that Josh is able to attend Slopes for Hope,” says committee chair Dona Bannenberg, “He is such an inspiration to our local community, and it is wonderful of him to give back and support our event.”

Mayor Ron McRae will also be in attendance to do a welcoming speech to the Slopes for Hope participants.

Members of the public are welcome to view “The Freedom Chair”, doors open at 5 p.m., with the show starting at 6 p.m. Admission is by donation.
