A team of Paralympic ski and snowboard athletes will be representing Great Britain at the 2018 Paralympics will take place in PyeongChang in South Korea between 9-18 March 2018 and they're looking for as much funding as they can raise.
All are supported by Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK) and the charity's patron, royal sister-in-law and extreme sports adventurer Pippa Middleton has helped launch a '5,560 mile ski challenge' named #Ski2Paralymics with that very aim.
To enjoy this challenge, you'll need to donate just £5 to DSUK on the #Ski2Paralympics JustGiving page and then share your ski mileage as often as you can get on ac ski slope on the DSUK Facebook event page (http://www.bit.ly/Facebookski2paralympics) by taking a screenshot of the distance travelled from the Crystal Ski Explorer app or any other ski tracking device.
"It is clear to me that the work of DSUK changes and enhances people's lives. Their adaptive snowsports programs create opportunities and inspire disabled people through snowsports. So, if you would like more of challenge to your own ski season, then why not take part the DSUK Ski2Parlympics18 and let's see who can ski to PyeongChang and back!" said Pippa Middleton.
DSUK will be recording the distance travelled and keep everyone updated on our progress. Miles can be skied, snow-shoed or snowboarded in the UK or abroad.
Everyone who enters will automatically enter a prize draw and with a bit of luck will win one of a selection of prizes, kindly donated by sponsors.
