Fight cancer by skiing on the slopes of Mt. Spokane next Saturday, Feb. 23. All funds raised for Hope on the Slopes will be directed to the American Cancer Society for cancer research. Events, which include raffle drawings, a scavenger hunt and after-party, last from 9am to 4pm.

Hope on the Slopes is a team and individual skiing event. Participants engage in a virtual competition with other Hope on the Slopes participants in two categories: Dollars Raised and Vertical Feet. Separate registration is required for individuals and teams.

Those who skied the most, measured by vertical feet, will win a pair of K2 skis.

This Hope on the Slopes event has a website where you register and make donations, get event info and each participant is provided an easily customizable page where stories and photos can be uploaded. To make a donation or to learn more about a Hope on the Slopes event, see www.mtspokane.com/hopeontheslopes.

The goal of Hope on the Slopes is to not only have fun, but also raise money for the American Cancer Society, helping in its mission to eliminate cancer. Pledges raised through Hope on the Slopes help provide cancer patients and their families with information and support, fund research that leads to improved treatments, educate the public about cancer prevention and early detection, and help ensure that everyone has access to lifesaving cancer screenings.

Mt. Spokane Ski & Snowboard Park, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is very proud to host this event and be a part of such a great event to raise money to combat cancer, a terrible disease which has no doubt touched all of us at some point.  Please join us on Saturday, February 23rd in the fight against cancer.
