PINK VAIL

THE WORLD'S BIGGEST SKI DAY TO CONQUER CANCER

Saturday, March 24 at Golden Peak in Vail, CO

Pink Vail is one of Vail’s most anticipated events of the season and the only one of its kind. Similar to a run or walk to support cancer, Pink Vail participants register here and ask their friends and family to make a donation on their behalf. Pink Vail is a fundraiser that brings nearly 3,000 people, dressed in pink, together on Vail Mountain for an all-day event with live music, deck parties, costume contest and more. Participants range in age from 1 to 85 years old, and many of them don’t even ski on the day of the event. 

Pink Vail proceeds benefit all patients at Shaw Cancer Center through enhancements to patient care and by funding our Spirit of Survival program, providing all patients the opportunity to receive free exercise training, nutrition coaching, emotional support, massages, acupuncture, outdoor adventures and much more. These unique services can dramatically impact a patient’s quality of life, but are not typically covered by insurance.
