On March 9, 2013, Vail Mountain welcomes hundreds of skiers and riders decked out in their finest pink apparel. These everyday athletes will gather in Vail for a one-day on-mountain event to raise awareness and funds in support of Shaw Regional Cancer Center’s new survivorship program. One of the country’s premiere boutique cancer treatment facilities, Shaw’s physicians and cancer specialists provide an innovative, holistic approach that empowers cancer patients to become cancer survivors. Pink Vail returns to Vail Mountain on Saturday, March 9, as the world’s largest ski day to conquer cancer.
Pink Vail is a participation-based fundraising event similar to a run or walk to support a cause – in this case, the cause is cancer. Participants receive pledges, or sponsorships, to ski Vail Mountain during the one-day event. Skiers and riders may participate as individuals or as members of a team, and registration and fundraising efforts are tracked through the event website at www.pinkvail.com.
