Oregon Cancer Ski Out and Ski to Defeat ALS logos

The Oregon Cancer Ski Out and Ski to Defeat ALS are two amazing fundraisers, and we are happy to be a part of them again this season. With the COVID-19 virus still affecting daily life, these two events will be quite different this season, but regardless of how they happen, we are grateful that they will happen!

Oregon Cancer Ski Out
The 33rd Oregon Cancer Ski/Snowboard Out will be held March 1-6, with the awards and a virtual auction happening on March 7. The Oregon Cancer Ski Out is an event for skiers and snowboarders that combines fun, competition, and fundraising with a unique racing format designed to let even novice skiers or snowboarders participate in the fight against cancer.

This year's race will be different, as racers will track their vertical feet rather than race in the traditional format. Each year teams of 5 compete for prizes in a race that rewards consistency and teamwork rather than individual speed. Teams participate in a fun competition, with prizes going to the top 3 teams. Since it began in 1988, the Oregon Cancer Ski Out has raised over $1,000,000 for its beneficiaries.

There will be unlimited tickets for sale for midweek, and 25 tickets available for Saturday, March 6.

Ski to Defeat ALS
The 10th Annual Ski to Defeat ALS event will take place on March 20, 21, 27, 28 and April 3, 4, 10 and 11. The Oregon and SW Washington Chapter of The ALS Association provides support and resources for people living with ALS, their families, and caregivers living in the State of Oregon and the six counties of Southwest Washington.

Ski to Defeat ALS has gone virtual this year, so you can ski or snowboard at your own leisure. The goal is to raise $72,000 that will help fund research to find treatments or a cure, provide care services and equipment for people living with ALS, and spread awareness of this terrible disease.

We will be selling 25 tickets per day for each of the dates listed above.
