24 Hours of Schweitzer

Thursday, 3/19/2015

This just in from the 24 Hours for Hank Board of Directors:

"After long consideration and pleading with Old Man Winter we have postponed 24 Hours of Schweitzer until next year. It was a decision that did not come easy and is still a little hard to stomach."


The seventh annual “24 Hours of Schweitzer” is a 24 hour downhill ski event that benefits Cystinosis Research, a rare and fatal disease that affects only 500 people nationwide. This all day and night fundraiser honors Hank Sturgis of Sandpoint, who has been diagnosed with Cystinosis.

24 hours of Schweitzer is a team relay for skiers, telemark skiers, and snowboarders beginning on Friday, March 20th and ending on Saturday the 21st. Your team decides how many runs each person takes. Teams will ski and ride for prizes, bragging rights and most importantly fundraising for Cystinosis research and Hank's future. On Saturday evening after the event there is an awards party and auction that includes food from around the world.  Limited to 200 participants.
