Join us for Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer ™ Boston, Massachusetts
December 2-4, 2021, at The Skating Club of Boston®

"The Skating Club of Boston is proud to host its second Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™ benefit in partnership with the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation. The Club’s goal is to exceed its 2018 fundraising total of $165,000, and to celebrate the opening of its new best-in-class facility in Norwood, MA  while supporting the CARES Foundation and Massachusetts’ leaders in the cancer research and treatment community.

Cancer touches all of us in one way or another, and I invite you to join us as we demonstrate once again the power of the skating community to make a difference beyond the rink boards.  Together, we can do something incredibly powerful to positively impact those affected by this disease.” 
Doug Zeghibe

The Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation is dedicated to changing the future of cancer by funding advanced, innovative research that treats the cancer while sparing the patient. CARES is an established 501(c)3 and a national identity in the cancer community.  CARES, which stands for Cancer Alliance for Research, Education, and Survivorship, is creating a cancer network built upon strong partnerships with leading institutions, cancer support groups, and researchers to improve the quality of life and provide better outcomes for those living with cancer. 

An integral part of one of the world’s most distinguished academic medical centers, the Massachusetts General Hospital is among the leading cancer care providers in the United States.  Known for providing customized, innovative treatments and compassionate care to both adults and children, the Cancer Center comprises more than 37 treatment programs within 29 fully integrated, multidisciplinary disease centers and a vast array of support and educational services.  

The Cancer Center’s commitment to eradicating cancer is fueled by scientific investigation conducted as part of one of the largest hospital-based research programs in the nation. Through a powerful synergy between laboratory scientists and bedside physicians, the Mass General Cancer Center fosters innovation in all phases of cancer research. Physician investigators conduct nearly 400 clinical trials annually.

The Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center is proud to be a founding member of a Harvard Medical School consortium designated by the National Cancer Institute as a comprehensive cancer center. This prestigious seven-member center forms the largest cancer research collaboration in the country. The promising new treatments developed through this partnership are revolutionizing the future of cancer medicine.

Since its founding in 1947, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts has been committed to providing adults and children with cancer with the best treatment available today while developing tomorrow's cures through cutting-edge research.  Their mission is to provide expert, compassionate care to children and adults with cancer while advancing the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases.  As an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute, Dana-Farber also provides training for new generations of physicians and scientists, designs programs that promote public health particularly among high-risk and underserved populations, and disseminates innovative patient therapies and scientific discoveries to their target community across the United States and throughout the world. 

There is an urgent need to improve outcomes for adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients.  While pediatric and adult survivorship has significantly increased in recent decades, AYA survival rates have been stagnant due to unique biology, clinical trial enrollment, age-based treatments, and unmet psychosocial needs. 

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Center for Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology (CAYAO) aims to improve outcomes for AYA patients by:
          -Uniting experts in pediatric and adult oncology for personalized care
          -Creating a space just for AYAs
          -Raising the visibility of AYA research
