Big White, bigger heart

Big White Ski Resort, is teaming up with People in Motion, to give kids with disabilities a fun-filled day of activities. 

This Saturday, kids and their families will have the chance to try out a variety of winter sports like adaptive down hill skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice-skating and tubing. 

Big White Ski Resort has worked alongside People in Motion Kelowna since 1996, to help give adults and their children with disabilities the opportunity to experience all that Big White has to offer.

People in Motion is an organization that works to support people with physical and sensory disabilities. The goal is to get the people and their families to participate in and contribute to their communities as much as they desire. 

Participants have been rallying pledges over the past month through a ski-a-thon for their chance to earn a discounted day of skiing at Big White.

All proceeds raised by the ski-a-thon will be donated to People in Motion Kelowna helping support future events and further awareness for people with disabilities community of Kelowna.

For those wishing to donate, the People in Motion team will be located in the lower level of Happy Valley Day Lodge from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. collecting donations.

Donations can also be made online.
