$75,000 raised in 24 hour ski marathon

An absolutely incredible $75,000 was raised at the ski resort of Schweitzer Mountain, Sandpoint, Idaho, USA in honour of cystinotic and Sandpoint resident, 3-year-old Henry Sturgis.
The resort stayed open through the night last Friday, as participants skied for the full 24 hours, with Matt Gillis completing an astonishing and record-breaking 196 non-stop laps.
