The Snowy Ride

TheĀ “Snowy Ride” is an annual fundraising event for the Steven Walter Foundation which provides support for research into childhood cancers with the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia. The Snowy Ride is held in the Snowy Mountains each November with on average around 3000 riders participating in the event each year.

At the 2010 Snowy Ride, Snowy Hydro announced a three year $100,000 per annum sponsorship of the Steven Walter Foundation. This agreement provides $50,000 per annum to the Steven Walter Foundation for ongoing research at the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia with the other $50,000 per annum going to the Steven Walter Foundation Snowy Ride “Special Kids Weekend in the Mountains” Program.

Snowy Hydro has been a sponsor and supporter of the Snowy Ride since its inception over 10 years ago and this $100,000 per annum sponsorship extends the existing partnership with the Steven Walter Foundation and “Snowy Ride” which is a major event in the local region.

In addition to our annual sponsorship, we work with the National Parks Service by hosting a 2 day mountain escape for children who are battling cancer and their families. Together with the National Parks Service and community service clubs, the children and their families are treated to the best hospitality the Snowy Mountains can provide, providing some rest, relaxation and enjoyment away from hospital.
