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

Our Events in 2015:

The Business Challenge  January 2015   Completed
The Ski Trip  March 2015   Completed

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.

  • 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.”

One of our Team 2014 veterans' sister is fundraising for us today, by running in One True Grit. The forecast is pretty bad, windy and rainy, and she also broke a bone in her hand whilst skiing a few weeks ago.

To get through this tough course she will think about her brothers achievements that started with our ski week. Because not only did it help him with getting his life back, it impacted on all his family. Now they have their son/brother/uncle/dad back in their family.
Just as it should be.

Well done Nina.
We are supporting you today :)

Just thought I'd share this. This is a video that one of our Buddies made for the veteran he was skiing with. Billy is quite severely visually impaired, he has lost one eye and has about 10% blurred vision in the other one, so he had an instructor to follow to ensure his safety (and that of the other skiers on the mountain). Well done Chris for making the video. Its brilliant.What a great skier Billy is !!
