    Right To Play mourns for Athlete Ambassador Estelle Balet


    Yesterday, we learned some very sad news: our Athlete Ambassador and the Swiss Snowboarding champion Estelle Balet died in an avalanche. The 21 year old had been shooting a movie in Valais when the tragic accident occurred.

    Estelle was an excellent Athlete Ambassador to Right To Play and we were lucky to know her. Last Friday, she graciously attended the Verbier Charity night, a fundraising event organized by her father, Eric Balet for Right To Play Switzerland. Earlier this month, she won the Freeride World Tour, defending her title as Snowboard Freeride World Championship.

    We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Balet family at this time.
