Pink Vail 2021 will mark the 10th anniversary of Pink Vail and will also be the last year for the event! This family friendly event will look different in 2021 but the funds raised still benefit all patients at Vail Health Shaw Cancer Center. 100% of Pink Vail donations and registration fees benefit all patients at Shaw through enhancements to patient care and patient programming. All Shaw patients, whether male or female, no matter their cancer diagnosis, have the opportunity to benefit from Pink Vail funds throughout their cancer treatment experience and beyond. These unique services can dramatically impact a patient’s quality of life, but are not typically covered by insurance.
Participants will be encouraged to celebrate the spirit of Pink Vail where they live and play. They will register and fundraise online like they always have. Then, they will pick a day between March 26-28 to celebrate Pink Vail their way! They can ski at their local mountain, take a hike or snowshoe, or simply go for a walk. The idea is to find their own way to commemorate a loved one or their own battle with cancer. As always, we will have great prizes to reward fundraising and participation efforts.

Personalize your fundraising page: explain why are you getting involved, what is your connection to the cause? The sad truth is that everyone has been touched by cancer. Pink Vail gives us a chance to support local men and women fighting the disease, celebrate survivors, and commemorate those who have lost their battle with cancer.
