Special Olympics Fund Raising Event

Fun Race PENDLE Saturday 7th January 2017

8.30 – 1.30 approx.

Some of you may know David Corr from our regular trips over to Pendle to take part in their winter race league events. Over the last eight years or so, I and others have seen David develop into a wonderful young man who absolutely loves his skiing and who takes great delight in kicking my ass in any of the head-to-head races I unfortunately have to endure when sometimes drawn against him!

Well, David has been selected to represent the UK in the World Special Olympics Winter Games in March 2017!! which is just reward for all his hard training, dedication and determination to keep improving in his chosen sport. Whilst this is a fantastic achievement and life changing experience for David each skier is expected to contribute up to £2,500 towards the squad costs.

To support David, Pendle Ski Club will hold an additional fun race event. This will be open to everyone in addition to their normal Winter Race League programme and will be held on Saturday 7th January 2017.

Entry fees will be £9 per person (equipment hire is available for an additional £3) and the event will take the form of two individual timed runs followed by team head to head racing against people with a similar time –the exact programme will be dependent on numbers. Take a look at the attached race details and let me know if you would like to take part. Anyone and everyone can enter, even if you’ve not raced at Pendle previously, it would be great to support David and I encourage as many of you to take part as possible.
