Story Description

The UBC Thunderbirds Nordic Ski Sports Club is going to Nationals! Eleven of our athletes have qualified for the cross-country skiing national championships in Silverstar, BC from March 21-April 2. We are incredibly excited to represent the Thunderbirds nationally, and need your support to send us there.

Challenges & Impact of Your Support

While we try to keep costs low, nationals will cost $1,500 per athlete to attend. We would appreciate your support to help subsidize the cost to make Nationals affordable for all of our qualified athletes.
