Enjoy a Rewarding Day on the Slopes by Joining the Hope on the Slopes Race to Beat Cancer

Have you been planning to hit the slopes this year but just haven’t been able to get away? How about joining the fight against cancer through the American Cancer Society’s Hope on the Slopes Race to Beat Cancer to get you motivated?

The 35th annual Race to Beat Cancer will take place in North Conway on Sunday, February 12th at Cranmore Mountain Resort. Whether you’re a recreational skier, a snowboarder, a downhill racer, a tubing enthusiast, or just want to help in the fight against cancer, you can join this meaningful and inspiring event. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. at the Main Base Lodge and the racing begins at 10:00 a.m.

Your minimum contribution of $75 ($50 for those 17 and under) includes a full-day lift or 2 hour tubing pass and a pizza lunch, courtesy of Flatbread Company. Participants are encouraged to collect donations from their friends, family, and colleagues and, if you do, you might even walk away with a Mount Cranmore 2012-2013 season pass as one of the top fundraisers. And remember that each donation takes us one step closer to the day when cancer is no longer a life-threatening disease.

Dollars raised from the Hope on the Slopes Race to Beat Cancer are used by the American Cancer Society to fund the most promising research; to spread lifesaving cancer awareness messages; to advocate for screening opportunities for all people; and to ease the cancer burden for people facing the disease. The event is sponsored by Cranmore Mountain Resort, Storyland, Amoskeag Beverages, Flatbread Company, M&M Assurance Group, Northway Bank and the Mount Washington Valley Radio Group.
