Freda Nieters completes Ski for SIDS event

Freda Nieters, 74, has a new nickname: The pink flying fossil. In her hot-pink one-piece ski suit, she skied 78,000 feet in about 8 hours and 30 minutes on March 29. If confirmed, this will be a new world record for her age group. Money raised from the event totaled $30,500, all benefiting SIDS, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, research.
