Runs For Buns
March 12 @ 7:30 am - 6:00 pm
Let’s come together, once again, to kick colon cancer’s butt (pun intended) No one should lose a mother, father, sister, brother, daughter, son, or any person we love, so let’s ski, snowboard, show up and raise funds for the cause! Not a skier or snowboarder? No problem… Register to be a fundraiser to still be a part of a great event and win cool prizes!
Runs for Buns is similar to a run or walk to support cancer, participants can ask family and friends to pledge per ski run or make a simple donation. 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.
Registration is required but is free.
You must have a valid lift ticket to participate. Lift tickets can be purchased when you register online or when you arrive at the slope on event day.
**If you plan to buy a lift ticket on the event morning you must also be registered here for the event**
Adult: $52 discounted lift ticket
Junior: $48 discounted lift ticket
Watauga County or Avery County Schools student or teacher: $30 discounted lift ticket.
There are two ways to help fundraise:
1. SIMPLE DONATION.
A Simple donation means that a donor gives a flat rate donation regardless of how many runs a participant does.
2. PLEDGE PER SKI RUN.
Pledge per ski run means that a donor pledges a dollar amount for every run you complete at the Runs for Buns event on 3/12.
If you pledge $1 per run and your participant does 25 runs, that is $25 you will be invoiced after the event.
In addition to the skiing we’ll have a virtual auction, live music and more. Check back soon to see all the awesome items. Auction will be open throughout the week of Sunday, March 6th through Saturday, March 12!
