Join Elwyn and Bear Creek Mountain Resort for the third annual Teddy Bedrossian Ski-a-Thon!
The Ski-a-Thon will be held on March 2, 2013 at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Macungie, PA.
The mission of the Teddy Bedrossian Ski-a-Thon is to fund a new school building for children with special needs at the Elwyn Davidson School in Media, PA.
The Ski-a-Thon was founded in memory of Teddy Bedrossian, a former Elwyn Davidson School student. Teddy was an adorable, blond-haired, blue-eyed, medically fragile special needs boy. When he was born, doctors predicited he would only live to be 4 months old. Defying all odds, he lived to be 18 years old. Four years ago, Teddy passed away, touching the lives of so many at Elwyn.
