Ski for Relief-Anchorage: 2015

We have the choice to ski, or not. In two hot regions of the world: Burma and South Sudan, despite some political progress, many ethnic people have no choice but to run from their oppressors. On January 31, 2015 at noon on the Hillside trails,130 skiers had the choice of techniques- skate or classic- to ski for oppressed people in South Sudan and Burma. Choose to Ski!
