Memorial ski event for Tom
FIS accredited ski racers will line up to compete from august 6 to 8 in the annual Tom Mathias Memorial Races.
The races are the first on the 2012 International circuit to take place in the southern hemisphere and have been named in memory of Tom Mathias who tragically died from melanoma at 23 years of age in 2009.
His friends and supporters honor his memory and passion for snowsports this year in the Tom Mathias races and the foundation created in his name - i ski for tommy or “isft.”
The isft program is endorsed by the Alfed Hospital and aims to educate the snow community about the dangers of melanoma and raise funds for the Victorian Melanoma Service [VMS].
