Strip down and ski for a cause on Jan. 25

Australian living in Revelstoke hosting bikini charity ride fundraiser for Australian Red Cross

One Revelstoke resident, originally from Australia, plans to ski in her bikini Jan. 25 in hopes of raising money for the Australian Red Cross.

Natalia Chorazy has set up a gofundme page to collect donations for the cause and get others to join the event.

“On Jan 25, while our nation celebrates Australia Day, I’ll be stripping down to my bikini and doing a party-lap on The Last Spike,” Chorazy wrote on the gofundme page.

Widespread drought and multiple heatwaves created perfect conditions for fires, which have scorched millions of hectares of bushland in Australia since October.

“Being away from home, especially during such devastation has been affecting so many the Aussies here in Revy,” Chorazy wrote.

“It’s surreal to be drowning in pow while our home is on fire.

”I hope this ride can unite us and together we can show our support for those at home.”

The event takes place Jan. 25, starting at 11 a.m., as participants will ski from Revelation Lodge to the Village via The Last Spike.
