There is a lot to learn about Ski to Defeat ALS, coming up on February 26, 2017. We have broken everything down into three major topics: About the
Ski, About Your Registration, and About Event Day. This will walk you
through the basics of the Ski to Defeat ALS, then how to register for
the event, and what to expect on Ski Day.
About The Ski
