ABOUT PINK PARK CITY
When: Saturday, March 23, 2019
Where: Canyons Village at Park City Mountain
IT’S THE GIANT PINK PARTY YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS
You can ski and snowboard all winter long, but only one day a year can you hit the slopes surrounded by an amazing, cancer-fighting community, incredible activities and celebrations, and an uplifting and inspiring atmosphere that is Pink Park City.
This all-day event covers Park City Mountain in pink, with fabulous deck parties, activities, giveaways, live music, over-the-top costumes, and hundreds of skiers. Pink Park City is a ski day dedicated to conquering more than just the slopes and having fun, but also conquering cancer by supporting research at Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Participants register and are able to ask their friends and family members to donate to their personal Pink Park City fundraising page where 100% of the donations go to fund cancer research.
Sign up, raise some funds, and join us for an amazing ski day supporting research at Huntsman Cancer Institute.
The first pink ski day started at Vail Mountain in 2012. Pink Vail started as a fundraising event to support breast cancer, specifically, but has since grown to support all patients at Shaw Cancer Center in Vail, Colorado.
Pink Park City was started in 2018 and is supporting research for ALL types of cancer by raising money for Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. Participants and donors even have the opportunity to restrict their funds to support research for a specific type of cancer.
WHY SUPPORT HUNTSMAN CANCER INSTITUTE
With management of the Utah Population Database (UPDB), Huntsman Cancer Institute houses the world’s largest repository of health and genealogic records in the world. More genetic mutations for inherited cancers have been discovered at Huntsman Cancer Institute than anywhere else in the world. The genes for breast, ovarian, melanoma, head and neck cancer, colon cancer, and more, were all discovered here.
By funding efforts to better understand the beginnings of cancer and more effectively treat cancer, you help relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for cancer patients, survivors, and their families when you give. Cancer patients, caregivers, and donors are encouraged to come together in a myriad of ways to fight cancer individually and collectively through fundraising programs and events like Pink Park City.
