After the guns have fallen silent, and the din of battle quietened, the real fight begins.

Our Events in 2015:

The Business Challenge  8-11 January;    The Ski Trip  7-14 March


OUR PURPOSE

Skiing With Heroes is a charity that helps wounded ex-Iraq and Afghanistan campaign soldiers back into employment through a ski-based support, mentoring, introduction and induction programme. Our work enables these Veterans to:

Recover their confidence
Re-enter employment
Reclaim their lives

Paralympic sport is a proven, potent medium for confidence-building, and skiing levels the odds between the ‘able’ and ‘disabled’ as few sports can. As has been shown to great effect during our inaugural 2013 and 2014 seasons, injured Veterans have used the Skiing with Heroes programme to help transfom their lives.

Using two principal events per year – The Ski Week each March, and the new-for-2015 Business Challenge in January – together with various one-off fund-raisers, we are rapidly expanding our ongoing help platforms. In doing so, Skiing With Heroes aims to provide lasting solutions for increasing numbers of Veterans.
