Chosen Charity

Each team has to raise a minimum of £6,000 for our chosen charity. We encourage skiers to set up a "VirginGiving" site for their team with all money raised goes directly to the charity. All expenses of the event are paid for by the competitors themselves.


Guy's St Thomas' Charity

For 2018 we have chosen to support a very exciting project at St Thomas’ Hospital that could revolutionise the way that heart attacks are diagnosed throughout the world, saving lives and valuable medical resources. This faster and more accurate diagnosis uses a handheld device to run an instantaneous blood test at a point when time is a critical factor in survival, and those who can safely be sent home will put less strain on resources. The funds we raise through the Coeur Blanc will enable them to create a functioning prototype and purchase devices for field testing.

In addition, we have to thank the ski instructors who have always kindly given their fees to support local Méribel charities. Méribel has some of the best disabled ski equipment in the Alps thanks to the Coeur Blanc, and this year we intend to sponsor them.
