In September of 2017, Alberta Alpine launched its newest fundraising campaign to support young ski racers in Alberta.
Friends of Alberta Alpine supports Alberta athletes who by their own merit, will represent Alberta in national and international events this coming season. The additional costs that performing athletes incur can often be a limiting factor for participation in special training camps and championship events.
With a minimum individual donation of $250, the funds raised within the Friends of Alberta Alpine program subsidizes these costs equally among qualifying athletes. Some events that would benefit Alberta athletes and teams include:
- $250 helps with extra baggage fees for U16 Nationals (Eastern Canada)
- $500 could provide fuel for transport to the Canadian Senior Championships
- $1500 could fly a coach and gear to Pokal Loka, International Children’s Race (Slovenia)
- $2500 could cover athlete expenses for special Canadian Ski Team invitation camps or competitions
Members of the program will receive a registered tax receipt and directly fund athlete development in Alberta. Also, many employers support “Matching Company Donation” programs that support such community initiatives. Download the official donation form below.
Please consider making a donation today by filling out the donation form and help developing Alberta skiers make it to the hill so they can show the best they can be.
Thank You for Your Support!
