The inaugural Great Get Off Your Butt and Ski Corporate Challenge Event was held in February 2003 because Chris McCubbins had an idea to organize an event that raised money to fund a ski program for students in downtown Winnipeg.
CCSAM’s Inner City Schools Ski Program was initiated in 2004, and for 6 years, Chris administered the program and was out on the snow with the kids each week at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre.
Chris passed away on August 21, 2009 after a six month battle with leukemia. On August 18, 2009 the Inner City Ski Program was renamed the Chris McCubbins School Ski Program, and the Great Get Off Your Butt and Ski event was renamed the Chris McCubbins Get Off Your Butt & Ski event in his honour.
