Team up with the Barton Foundation and Heavenly Mountain Resort to give cancer the boot at Pink Heavenly
February 8, 2019
The Barton Foundation's inaugural Pink Heavenly event is making tracks to help patients in the South Lake Tahoe area who are fighting cancer.
The slopeside fundraising event at Heavenly Mountain Resort on Saturday, March 23, will benefit cancer support services available through Barton Health. Studies show that cancer patients participating in wellness programs have a higher quality of life and experience more energy and less depression.
Registration is now open at PinkHeavenly.com for skiers and snowboarders to form teams that will raise money before sporting outrageous pink outfits to the on-mountain party at Heavenly's California Base Lodge. Similar to a cancer run or walk, Pink Heavenly participants can register as individuals, start a team or join a team and ask their friends and family to make a donation on their behalf.
The $25 registration fee includes a family-friendly deck party with live music, costume contests, prizes, and an on-mountain Poker Run. Pink Heavenly participants will also have the opportunity to honor a friend or loved one by skiing or riding in the "Celebration of Life," a symbolic run in the united fight against cancer.
All ticket proceeds, donations and registration fees from Pink Heavenly will be donated to Barton Health's cancer support services to help patients in the greater South Lake Tahoe area living with all forms of cancer including movement classes, wellness and nutrition coaching, support groups, and acupuncture treatments. These unique services can dramatically impact a patient's quality of life and are not typically covered by insurance.
For registration and more information about Pink Heavenly, visit PinkHeavenly.com or call 530-543-5909.
