THERE IS A SERIOUS SIDE
The Yamaha Melanoma Foundation Ski-nZ will be held each year from 2013 to raise funds that help the Melanoma Foundation achieve its goals. Participants will need to raise a minimum of $1500 in tax deductible sponsorship to enter. Participants are encouraged to compete with fellow participants to see who can raise the most sponsorship.
