Ski for Relief-Anchorage: 2016

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 February 6, 2016 at noon on the Hillside trails,66 skiers had the choice of techniques- skate or classic- to ski for oppressed people in Sudan, Kurdistan Iraq and Burma. Choose to Ski!
