Webster, MA - The Webster Water Ski Collective is honored to partner with Foxy Travel / FTI Coach, Wachusett Mountain and the Menard family to host the inaugural “Swaterski to Fight Cancer” event at Point Breeze, Webster, in memory of Christine (Repsys) Menard. The event will benefit the National Brain Tumor Society.
“December 5th isn't a day I like to remember, it is the day we lost my Mom to glioblastoma, a very aggressive and currently incurable form of brain cancer,” said Keith Menard. “
Finding a way to give back
The “SwaterSki” event will be a dual Water Ski and Snow Ski event taking place on December 5th. Water skiing will be for those brave enough to ski in a New England December and will be held at the Webster Water Ski Collective shack at Point Breeze Marina. Following Waterskiing, we will go to Point Breeze restaurant where participants can enjoy a free adult-beverage (beer/wine) for those over 21. Afterwards, those wanting to complete the Swaterski event can join us at Wachusett Mountain for a night ski. Transportation will be provided for those who want to join the group from Webster.
I think when you are affected by the death of someone close to you, you want to find some way to give back, some walk, some ride, and me, well, I waterski, and I snowboard.” said Keith Menard. “Think of it as the waterskiers version of a polar plunge..”
