Pink Vail 2016 Raises $734,611 for Cancer Patients

The 5th year of Pink Vail was officially a favorite. Nearly 3,000 vibrantly pink participants, including 211 cancer survivors, took over Vail Mountain on Saturday for the world’s biggest ski day to conquer cancer – ALL cancers. With perfect snow conditions, live-music all day and nary a cloud in the sky, it was truly incredible. We were so excited to be a part of Pink Vail, it reminded us why we fight so hard to stay alive and that finding a cure is so very necessary.  We heard amazing stories from individuals who are fighting cancer, stories from those who have survived and stories about those who have not.
