Why Participate in the Event?
This event has been created in loving memory of Teddy Bedrossian, an 18-yr-old, medically fragile boy who passed away of kidney failure. Unable to talk or hear, he brought an indescribable richness to those he met through acts of kindness and his contagious smile. He attended Elwyn, a unique non-profit organization that provides services to those with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities .Elwyn needs to build a new school at the cost of $15 million . This Ski-a-thon will raise funds for the school in Teddy’s memory.
