Oregon Cancer Ski Out
P.O. Box 1484, Wilsonville, Oregon 97070
In 1988, Larry (Chad) Chadwick and a small group of friends started the Oregon Cancer Ski Out as a way to positively channel their sadness and frustration over the loss of loved ones due to cancer. Their idea was to create an event that would raise funds to support cancer research and programs that provide care and comfort to cancer patients and their families. They knew it had to be meaningful, affordable and above all, it had to be … serious fun! Each year we hold a uniquely-formatted two day ski race at Mt. Hood Meadows, for up to 35 five-member teams made up of skiers and boarders of all ages and all levels. Our format rewards teams for consistency, rather than speed. Of the dollars raised, a whopping 90% of the monies actually go to worthy causes working on the forefront of this battle. Thanks to our generous sponsors and dedicated race participants, guests and volunteers, over $900,000 has been distributed to beneficiaries since 1989. The 2017 race dates are March 12-13. We have added a mountain biking event called the Oregon Cancer Bike Out, held each fall at Wanoga Sno Park near Bend.
