This past weekend a gathering of brave men and women took to the slopes in their skivvies in order to raise awareness and cash for breast cancer research.
Known as the “Bikini Downhill,” the race takes place at New Zealand’s Turoa ski area, a smaller part of the larger Mt Ruapehu ski domain. Ultimately, the group raised close to a $1k bucks with 75 skiers and riders braving the snow in bikinis– men and women both.
In an interview with NewsHub, Breast Cancer Foundation NZ CEO, Evangelia Henderson relished the event saying, “We are always amazed at the creative ways in which our community supports us.”
