I am skating in memory of my Papa (Richard Schnittjer) who battled breast cancer 2 times and in honor of my Keke (Kimberly Doolan) who is a 6 year breast cancer survivor. Each of us has sadly knows someone in our own personal life who has been touched by cancer. It is a journey I wish no one ever had to go on.
I am a member of the Scott Hamilton Skating Club in Nashville, TN and often compete in figure skating tournaments. I love to figure skate and am so grateful for the opportunity to skate for a second year for this amazing cause. Cancer research is a vital part of the fight to eliminate cancer and I am so proud to do what I can to make a difference.
This year I am hoping to raise at least $5,000 to help continue this fight! Please help me support cancer research by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise funds advanced, innovative research through the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation, as well as their healthcare partners.
We will Sk8 to Elimin8 cancer in November. All funds go directly to cancer research. If I am fortunate to be one of the top fundraisers by mid-October, I will get the opportunity to be featured in a very special evening at Bridgestone Arena and skate along with some incredible skaters, including our own Olympic Gold Medalist, Mr. Scott Hamilton!
Please join me and give as generously as you can to this amazing cause. Please also let me know the name of the loved one you would like me to skate in honor of. It would be a privilege to honor them.
When we come together, we can make a difference!
With love and a grateful heart,
Thank you for all you have given! Love, Gianna

THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of our family and friends for your amazing show of support!! I sincerely appreciate each one of you who contributed to my fundraising efforts for this incredible cause! I initially set my goal at a lofty $5,000 and you quickly blew that out of the water by helping me cast my net further than I could have ever envisioned! Never in a "Million Dreams" did I ever imagine that over 100 individuals would join me in my efforts to raise money for this cause. I am humbled and genuinely moved beyond words at your generosity and so grateful for each and every dollar you have graciously given to help fund cancer research. Whether you donated a lot or a little, thank you for giving what you had. Together we really can make a difference and I am so proud to have you on my team! Thank you with all of my heart!!! With love and an extremely grateful heart, Gianna XO
