Sponsors support skiing in Kimberley

Kids sport and Jump Start have funded ski passes for Ta Hay Tha and KuGay

Ku Gay and Ta Hay Tha will be skiing again this year.

Thanks to Kids Sport and Jump Start for funding ski passes for sister Ku Gay and brother Ta Hay Tha so they can continue their enjoyment of skiing this winter season. Ku Gay took lessons last year and Ta Hay Tha continues to learn with enthusiasm. This year Ta Hay Tha will be skiing on new ski legs developed by Kees Beek at Rocky Mountain Prosthetics. Ta Hay Tha’s ski legs were funded by the War Amps Champs Program. The Karen Family, originally from Burma, has been here almost four years and skiing has become a passion. Ta Hay Tha has had great volunteer support, teaching him how to take to the slopes. If you have time and are interested in helping out, please contact Barb at 250-426-6559.
