Beating Breast Cancer from the Bottom Up!
Breast cancer affects hundreds of thousands of women in the United States annually. October may have already passed, but it is never too late to raise awareness for a disease afflicting so many! Once again, we have teamed up with the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center to raise as much money possible. What started with a single weekend has now turned into a season long effort. This season we will aim to beat last year’s amount raised: $3,000.00. Keeping in mind that the funds raised will be matched by The Prouty in 2018, together we can “lock in” a brighter future for Breast Cancer patients and their families.
Donations can be made at any point of sale at the Omni Mount Washington Resort throughout the 2017/18 Ski Season and we have some great programs running through the end of the ski season to raise as much money as possible for the Norris Cotton Cancer Center right here in New Hampshire. The funds get matched by The Prouty so whatever we raise, gets doubled!
Season Long Fundraisers
- Tie One On For Breast Cancer
