Here’s a little plug for a fun event coming up:
If you love to ski or ride you can make a difference in the fight against cancer by supporting Hope On The Slopes at Crystal Mountain on March 13, 2010.
“Hope on the Slopes” (HOTS) is a ski and snowboard event benefitting the American Cancer Society (ACS). First conducted at the White Pass ski area in 2004, the event has grown to four Washington mountains for 2010.
How it works:
HOTS participants ask supporters to make donations to ACS in recognition of their commitment to ski as many vertical feet as they can over the course of the event. All fundraising is done via an ACS website where participants establish a personal fundraising web page to share their message and show their progress. In addition to funds contributed by supporters, all sponsorship proceeds go straight to the ACS, as the cost of conducting the event is completely borne by participants, volunteers and the hosting ski areas.
Registration is done online. The cost to register is $35 per individual or $150 for a team of up to 10 people. If you raise a minimum of $100 you will receive a complimentary lift ticket for the day!!! To register for HOTS, go to the HOTS website.
