Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™ Cleveland is coming to the Cleveland area very soon! Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™ is the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation’s signature fundraising program. It’s a peer-to-peer fundraiser, so people register with them for $35 and then ask their friends and family to donate. To celebrate our fundraising success, we are having an Ice Show at Cleveland Public Square on December 8th, and Scott is coming to Emcee!
The net proceeds from the event will equally benefit CARES cancer research (we are currently funding a study in pediatric glioblastoma brain tumors) and the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute. The Clinic saved Scott’s life, and it’s so special to me as a Clevelander and a part of the Foundation to bring this event here as Scott celebrates 25 years of survivorship!
What’s in it for you? Aside from knowing we’ve made a difference together, getting Scott back to Cleveland, and elevating our sport – participants can earn items from our recognition program like water bottles and cooler bags as a small token of thanks, plus every city has its own unique set of incentives. In Cleveland, they are as follows:
- Anyone who raises $1,000 or more is invited to our Meet and Greet with Scott and our other star performers, to be announced
- The Top 8 fundraisers will be invited to perform solos in our ice show
- The Top 15 fundraisers will get to be a part of a special group number in the show
- The Top 3 Synchro or TOI teams will be invited to perform
The fundraising deadline to perform is November 18th, so don’t wait to get started!
To sign up: Register yourself and fundraise! Even if you don’t want to perform, you can still fundraise and support cancer research! If you are in the top 8, you can just decline your solo spot.
