Shred the Love in Rossland

Top skiers and snowboarders, including Megan Pischke, Kendra Starr and Kasha Rigby, will Shred the Love at Red this weekend.

The North Face presents B4BC’s Shred The Love Breast Cancer Benefit and Red Mountain Resort hosts “ReTreat Yourself” for cancer survivors on Saturday, March 8.

The event is an inclusive ski-and-ride day where Red Mountain Resort will donate 50 per cent of its day ticket revenue to help raise funds for several of B4BC’s initiatives, including scholarships through the Survivorship Fund to ReTreat Yourself, a yoga, ski and snowboard retreat for women who have been affected by breast cancer.

Activities at Red on Shred The Love Day will include ski and snowboard demonstrations as well as breast cancer screening information booths.

Top skiers and snowboarders, including Megan Pischke, Kendra Starr and Kasha Rigby, will be in attendance.

Shred the Love is open to all who want to help raise funds for a great cause by skiing at Red that day.

The event will also include raffles of top ski and snowboard gear and drink specials in the bar that will help raise funds for B4BC. For those unable to attend but that are interested in making a donation, an online fundraising page is available at www.b4bc.org/shredthelove

Boarding for Breast Cancer will spend a percentage of the funds in the Rossland/Trail community, where they were raised. With its second year in the making, Red continues to make Shred the Love an annual event.

Red Mountain Resort is hosting the “ReTreat Yourself,” a private event for 10 breast cancer survivors, from March 7-10.
