On Dec. 10 the Whistler Sliding Centre welcomed almost 300 guests to the facility for Fast Food: Skeleton Slide for Hunger. Through the overwhelming support of the community, we were able to come incredibly close our goal of raising $15,000 for the Sea to Sky community food banks at a time of great need.
I would like to thank the community for their enthusiastic participation in the event; the incredible volunteer and sponsor contributions; and our dedicated staff. The Sliding Centre dedicated an entire day of operations to this event and each and every staff member went above and beyond to deliver a safe and fun experience for all the participants.
This event raised money for a great cause, and it also allowed the community to experience the facility firsthand, increasing awareness of sliding sports. All of us at the Whistler Sliding Centre welcome the community to the venue for our public bobsleigh and skeleton programs, and we encourage you to follow sliding sport athletes training in our backyard — especially as we approach the Sochi 2014 Games.
Thank you again to everyone involved in the planning and execution of this event, and all those who participated. The event could not have been a success without you. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Director, Whistler Sliding Centre
