High Fives Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing life-changing injuries and providing resources for individuals who have suffered such injuries, proudly presents the 2024 Ski-a-Thon Series. This series of three Shred-a-thons, spanning across three states in the US, plays a pivotal role in contributing over $720,000 to the Foundation’s annual budget, supporting their mission of creating awareness and making a difference in the lives of athletes and veterans.
From the moment it’s announced until the Ski-a-Thon day, participants aim to raise as much money as possible individually or as teams. This not only qualifies them for incredible prize packages but also offers additional opportunities to win prizes based on their skiing or snowboarding activities on the specified date and location.
The Green Mountain Shred-A-Thon, formerly known as the FAT SKI-A-THON, kicks off the series at Sugarbush Resort, Vermont. This event has become a cornerstone, with the Sugarbush community wholeheartedly supporting it, making it the highest-grossing event for High Fives Foundation.
