Join us for Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer ™ Rochester, New York
A Virtual Fundraiser, November 15 to December 31, 2020
hosted by the Genesee Figure Skating Club Junior Activities Committee


Cancer knows no bounds of gender, age, or race - it impacts everyone.  In 2020, an estimated 1.8 million new people will be diagnosed with cancer and 606,520 patients will die in the United States alone because of this disease.  Despite those staggering numbers, if current trends continue, cancer research funding will decrease by 50% this year, which is why we need you to join us!  Proceeds from this event will benefit the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation and The University of Rochester Wilmot Cancer Institute and their efforts in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology.

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 as a 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. 

The University of Rochester's Wilmot Cancer Institute  (WCI) features an 86-bed cancer center with 11 outpatient locations throughout the Rochester and Finger Lakes region. Wilmot, a component of Strong Memorial Hospital, offers patients and their families comprehensive services including one of upstate New York’s largest blood and marrow transplant programs and the Rochester area’s only ACOS-accredited breast cancer center. Wilmot is home to the region’s first survivorship clinic and offers clinical trials of new therapies and options that may not be available anywhere else upstate. In addition, Wilmot includes a team of scientists who investigate many aspects of cancer, with an emphasis on how best to provide precision cancer care.
