Ski Racing Team Silvaplana-Champfer
We are extremely grateful to Ski Racing Team Silvaplana-Champfer for their help in organizing our charity ski races in Switzerland! Not only were they the first team to sign up for our inaugural race, but they also promoted our event to other local ski teams and shared their experience in coordinating competitions. Ski Racing Team is located in Engadin, Switzerland and offers trainings for ski athletes. The Ski Racing Team emerged out of common interest to promote young athletes, providing professional ski race training as well as building up a strong and competitive team.
We are partnering with Walkabout Foundation fundraising campaign. We thought that, while we can’t ski in the summer, we can help in other ways, such as running with Walkabout. Walkabout Foundation’s goal is to raise money in order to provide the developing countries wheelchairs, rehabilitation and they are also actively searching for a way to cure paralysis. The Walkabout Foundation organizes marathons and half-marathons all around the world to raise money for wheelchairs and rehabilitation therapies.
