Board ABC DayWhen: Saturday 30th August 2014
Where: Thredbo Resort
How Much: $45.00

Get a group of your mates together for a fun day boarding while raising money for brain cancer.

The 3rd Annual ʻBoard ABC Dayʼ will take place at Thredbo this year where participants will ʻBoard Against Brain Cancerʼ (Board ABC).

Many people are still unaware that brain cancer is one of the most lethal yet understudied of all cancers. It is the leading cancer killer for young people under age 39 and children under 10, yet receives very little research funding. This event is in association with the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.

This year the format will include an ‘all female’ snowboarding session that offers female riders a chance to unite and ride in a non-intimidating environment, with a bunch of girls. Participants will be coached by some of Australiaʼs top female snowboarders, as well as professional snowboard instructors.

There will also be an ʻall maleʼ Jumping Workshop. This will cater to riders who can already ride the terrain parks and want to improve their jumping and spinning. Participants will be coached by some of Australiaʼs best male snowboarders. They will have the opportunity to obtain personal feedback in a casual environment.

Proceeds from the day will be donated to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is driving the national research agenda for brain cancer. As the largest dedicated fundraiser for brain cancer research in Australia, they mobilise communities, advocate to government and raise awareness. Their mission is to increase five-year survival to 50% within 10 years.

Come and be involved in a FUN day for a GREAT CAUSE.
