Pippa Middleton is hitting the slopes – for a good cause.

Kate's sister is set to participate in Sweden's 56-mile, cross-country race, the Vasaloppet, on March 4, reports the AP. Joining her for the charity race: brother James Middleton.

The race, first held in 1922, will begin near the Norwegian border and continue to the central Swedish town of Mora. It will benefit the children's hunger charity, Magic Breakfast. Last year, the AP reports, 16,000 people took part.

With her husband away in the Falkland Islands, wonder if the Duchess of Cambridge will be cheering, all bundled-up, from the sidelines?
