Runs for Buns 2021
March 6 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Let’s come together, once again, to conquer colon cancer. Last year we raised $30,000 and this year we are looking to raise even more. Runs for Buns is similar to a run or walk to support cancer, participants can ask family or friends to donate on their behalf. Participants range in age and many do not even ski. Join us for a day of skiing, snowboard and fun all for a good cause.
100% of donations and registration fees benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. The chance of surviving colon cancer goes up with early detection and treatment-but only 40% of colon cancers are found in the early stages. Help us increase screening rates and save more lives.
Due to COVID-19 we ask for your patience as we work hard to keep everyone safe. Masks are required to be warn while on property. For more information on our COVID-19 practices please visit here.
Register as an individual or a team and ask family or friends to support your fundraising efforts. Not a skier, no problem! You can still be a part of a great event, and win cool prizes. The goal is simply to raise awareness and conquer colon cancer.
Lift Ticket Discounts:
All participants can purchase lift tickets at the discounted group rate. For more information on our group rates please visit here: https://www.beechmountainresort.com/tickets-passes/groups/
All the proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the Colon Cancer Coalition.
There are two ways to fund-raise
:1. SIMPLE DONATION. Simple donation means that donors give a flat rate regardless of how many runs you do.
2. PLEDGE PER RUN. Pledge per run means that donors pledge a dollar amount for every run you complete at the GYRIG event. For example, you can pledge $1 per run.
Awards will be given to the:
Top fundraising Team
Most Ski or Snowboard Runs
Most Spirited Team
Starting on March 1st we will be hosting an online silent auction featuring some cool prizes donated by community members. The auction will open on March 1st and will run through March 6th. All the proceeds will go directly to the Colon Cancer Coalition. If prizes are not picked up in person than shipping fees will apply. More information to come.
