PARK CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) –After a successful inaugural Pink Park City ski event last spring Huntsman Cancer Foundation decided to come back for its second run raising a total of $155,000.
The foundation’s goal was to raise $150,000. One hundred percent of the funds raised will benefit vital research for all types of cancer at Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Pink Park City is a celebration of life with a party on and off the slopes for all ages. This ski day to conquer cancer was held at Park City Mountain’s Canyon Village.
“This fundraiser is fueling the next new breakthrough in cancer research that will lead to life-saving treatment and defeat cancer,” said cancer survivor Holly Hagerman, co-chair of Pink Park City. “We are so grateful for the support of the Park City community, all of the generous fundraising, our sponsors, friends, and family.”
The all-day event covered Park City Mountain in pink by way of hundreds of skiers in over-the-top costumes.
