RENEGADE RIDERS *** NEW IN 2015***
In an effort to embrace more of the community, and inspired by a current Cancer Wellness House member, we are adding the Survivors at the Summit Renegade Ride. Riders will meet at CWH downtown and make the 30 mile ride to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort. Lets make the roads RUMBLE!
PANCAKES ON THE PLAZA
Snowbird and Cancer Wellness House invite sponsors, donors, hikers, members, survivors, families and the general public to the annual Pancakes on the Plaza breakfast from 9-11am. CWH volunteers team up with Snowbird’s chefs to offer steaming plates of mouth-watering pancakes and delicious bacon to fuel your journey to the top. Bring your friends and family for a good old fashioned mountain breakfast while paying tribute to the courage and determination so many have exhibited in the fight against cancer. Breakfast is included with registration. Additional tickets may be purchased for $5 each.
HIKE, RUN, RIDE OR CATCH A CHAIR LIFT TO PERUVIAN GULCH
The Journey, NO MATTER HOW YOU MAKE IT, symbolizes the individual “Summit” each person with cancer faces and strives to achieve. Join us on this 3.5 mile trail ending just below Hidden Peak in honor of the person in your life that has been touched by cancer. A sea of personalized Survivors at the Summit Tribute Flags will welcome the participants as they arrive. Those who are unable to make the journey by strength of body may make it in strength of mind and spirit by riding the Peruvian Lift at no additional charge.
CELEBRATION OF LIFE CEREMONY
For many, the ceremony on this day will be one that perhaps words can not describe. For those of you seeking those words the Celebration of Life Ceremony features inspirational speakers and live entertainment as you view the hundreds of flags flying on the mountain side. These flags are truly the heartbeat of this event and carry beautiful heartfelt messages for all to see.
PRIZES AND INCENTIVES
