U.S. Ski Team speed athlete Scott Macartney has barely been home 24 hours and already he’s raised nearly $3000 to help beat cancer. Join him this Saturday at Crystal Mountain to help raise even more cash for the American Cancer Society. Dubbed Hope on the Slopes, the fundraiser features individual and team competitions based on skiing the most vertical. Participants can win prizes while raising money for a great cause, and Macartney’s mom Laurie, a cancer survivor herself will be on hand to make lunch.
