2013 Results

Last year's event raised over $11,000 for cancer research and Mount Washington Valley patient services.Volunteers enjoyed -filled day on the slopes including skiing, snowboarding and tubing races at Cranmore.

“Mount Washington Valley residents, second home owners, and visitors alike really showed their spirit," said Kathy Metz, Community Executive for the American Cancer Society.  The top three individual fundraisers were Neville White of Jackson who brought in $1,758; Richard Ayer of Glen who raised $1,710 from friends and family; and Ken Romano of  Lynnfield,  MA, who collected $945 in donations.

The money will be used to speed up the search for new weapons to fight cancer. “Cancer will soon become the number-one killer in America as baby boomers grow older.  In order to expand our patient services in the Mount Washington Valley and research new ways to treat patients, we've got to channel more public attention and money into this problem."

“The funds raised through the Hope on the Slopes Race to Beat Cancer enable us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer through research, education, advocacy, and patient services,” added Metz. “Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers and donors, the money raised by Hope on the Slopes Race to Beat Cancer participants goes directly to the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving programs.”
