"Had he asked me anytime sooner, I would have turned down his offer.

“A barefoot tournament combined to a charity to raise awarness and funds for ALS”.
But on that very precise day Andy McDonald contacted me, there must have been some kind of bump in the space/time continuum… On that day, I got the news that a friend succumbed to cancer. And all there was left do, was mourn and honour his memory. Also on that very same day, I got an email from an ALS charity asking for support. I suddenly realised I had two loose ends in my hands that just had to be tied together. Unlike for my friend, there was something that could be done. It simply took to say “YES !” to Andy’s project.

So let’s celebrate life in an event of friendship, joy and solidarity. It does not matter if you attend the upcoming event as a skier, official, spectator, supporter, donator, FRIEND... as long as you are there to make it happen and show the world the barefoot community stands together as one to support PALS*
