Snow kids take a walk raise quality funds
MOUNT Hotham Resort last week hosted its fifth Camp Quality Fun Walk to raise awareness and funds for children with cancer and terminal illness.
More than 100 people took part and raised $5000 in bright but cold weather on Wednesday.
Wire Plain Snow Stuff Park operations manager Steve Belli runs a fortnightly trivia competition in the winter season and contributed all proceeds to the cause on the day.
Mount Hotham Camp Quality ambassador and committee member Tracey Williams said the support from people on the mountain and operators was outstanding.
“We have pro forma for everything we do and each year we can run on a very small committee, but very reliant on the generosity of businesses at Mount Hotham, Dinner Plain and a couple external businesses,” she said.
Ms Williams said that the creativity of the costumes worn on the day showed how much thought went into helping the cause.
Most of the children who took part dressed up.
“Every year the creativity gets better – we have had more children participate than ever before,” Ms Williams said.
“The Alpine School made their own costumes and some bought them with them for the term they have up here.
“We had one of the year nine students going back on the bus who had won a prize and said it was the best day ever.” Mount Hotham’s Camp Quality Fun walk last week attracted numerous children who dressed for the fundraiser. PHOTO: Mount Hotham Resort Management
