Jack Frost Mountain is hosting a fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, a leading force in fighting breast cancer. The event is one of a series being held across the country this winter, which in turn are part of the foundation's ongoing efforts to fund breast cancer research.
The event is simple, helpful, and part of a nationwide effort to fight breast cancer.
Skiers and snowboarders raise funds for breast cancer research by getting pledges of money - so much for each run - and then making as many runs as possible.
The event is Saturday Feb. 26. Registration is at 8 a.m. Pledge sheets are available online.
The event includes a dedication run at 11 a.m. in memory of those who have died of breast cancer, in honor of those who are survivors, and in support of those fighting the disease.
In addition to the pledge money raised, $2 of every lift ticket sold Feb. 26 at Jack Frost will be donated to Komen for the Cure. Money raised benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Northeastern Pennsylvania Affiliate.
Jack Frost Mountain, located in the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania and sister mountain of nearby Big Boulder, has 20 trails and a terrain park, beginner through expert, 100 skiable acres, 100 percent snowmaking, 600 foot vertical, served by 10 chairs and one magic carpet.
