What is an Honored Hero?
An honored hero is a blood cancer patient or survivor. Ski4Life's honored hero give volunteers and participants the opportunity to connect with a patient or survivor, educate about blood cancers, and encouraging skiers to raise money to find a cure. While fundraising for Ski4Life, participants can remember the honored hero and raise money to help find a cure for blood cancers!
Meet Gena, our Ski4Life 2015 Honored Hero
Gena was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma in February 2010. A high school art teacher, Gena enjoys refinishing furniture, reading, and spending time with friends and family in her spare time. We are thankful that Gena is now cancer free!
Than you Gena for being our inspiration while we send cancer downhill!
Skiers and snowboarders will also have space on their bib in which to write a note if they are skiing in honor or memory of a loved one.
