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

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 annual Ski Weeks, wounded 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 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.
Our Upcoming Events:
We are proud to be supported by The Endeavour Fund.

I can really hardly believe that I have skied. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You have allowed me to put some demons to bed and let me achieve a dream I NEVER thought might become a reality…
The physical benefit of these activities is clear… Sit‐Skiing has increased my core strength to such an extent that I can now do sit ups for the first time in 11 months.”

Also huge thanks to Bodo’s Schloss and the Wynegg Restaurant who are great SwH supporters and we are truly grateful.
