Youth Charity Snow-Camp are looking for 25 teams of snowsports enthusiasts to enter their Snow-Camp Rally 2012. Being held on Wednesday the 7th November, the Rally is an epic one day charity fundraising event offering teams of skiers and snowboarders the opportunity to complete a road trip like to other; to ski or board the 5 indoor snow centres in England in a full-on 12 hours! The team who completes the most runs collectively across the 5 snow centres will be crowned Snow-Camp Rally Champions 2012 and win a huge trophy, a week’s stay in an apartment in Val D’Isere and a Heliski experience for their top fundraiser!
Snow-Camp’s Events Manager Dan Keeley said, ‘the Rally has been re-launched as a one day event to make it easier for teams to participate and enabling much more free slope time! The support from the snow centres was essential, and we are delighted to have all of them onboard, ensuring a fantastic event which promises to deliver some amazing memories for everyone involved.’
The annual event aims to generate at least £20,000 for Snow-Camp’s work supporting disadvantaged inner-city young people through the use of snowsports and life skills programmes. The charity reports the government cuts and the recession have made funds harder to access over recent years, and that events like the Rally have become essential for raising funds needed to support Snow-Camp’s work with inner city young people.
