Katie's Ski Tracks
Katie's Ski Tracks is a small voluntary organisation, but with a very big heart, providing skiing holiday opportunities to children with varying disabilities and even terminal illness. For the vast majority there will be little or no opportunity to participate in this type of sporting activity and therefore they are normally excluded. Katie's has over 20 years’ experience and continues to provide all the necessary specialised equipment, instruction and volunteers including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, ski guides, instructors and entertainments officers to enable this unique and valuable life-changing experience to become a reality.
These therapeutic skiing holidays enable the children to participate and succeed in a sport they would never have dreamt possible. Even the opportunity to take in the beauty the mountains has to offer can seem to be an experience we can take for granted. These opportunities help them to temporarily forget about their disability and meet their future positively, growing in confidence and self-esteem. These are the building blocks to Katie's success, allowing them to make the impossible possible.
Due to the extensive specialist care that is needed, the average cost for each child on a ski trip is £1,550. At SkiBound, we are working to actively fundraise for Katie's Ski Tracks and with your help, we can make this opportunity a reality for so many more children. We are giving you the chance, as a Party Leader, to make a difference by adding a £1 donation per passenger to your tour price. Events taking place in our Clubhotels throughout the season also provide your school ski group with the opportunity to support the great work of Katie’s Ski Tracks.
TUI is an official fundraiser for Katie's Ski Tracks. We would be most grateful if you can help raise funds to make the impossible very possible for these disadvantaged children.
