I skated 9 km towards my goal!
I am humbled and honored to once again be a captain for Adirondack Health and a participant in the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer – 2021 Lake Placid Event Fundraiser.
Due to the current circumstances this year’s event is a virtual Frozen 5K with participants choosing whatever method is convenient to complete the 5K, skating, walking, skiing, snowshoeing, etc. I chose to skate, and I fulfilled my commitment on Tuesday February 23. I skated 23 laps at the Lake Placid Olympic Speed Skating Oval which equates to 9K.
I am asking you to please consider donating and helping me support this amazing cause that is very dear to my heart. All the funds raised will be split between the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation Cancer Research and Adirondack Health’s Merrill Oncology Center Travel Fund. The Travel Fund is used to help patients and their families with expenses they incur when it is necessary for them to travel to receive treatments. The CARES Foundation funds advanced, innovative cancer research that treats the cancer while sparing the patient.
Thank you for your consideration and support. I greatly appreciate it! When we come together, we can make a difference!
