Scott Hamilton to return to BGSU to raise money for cancer research

Scott Hamilton was back in the place he got his start on ice back in 2017. Jan McKnight greeted him and asked to have him sign a ice show program from 1973.


Figure skating icon and cancer survivor Scott Hamilton has been leading the cause, lacing up skates, and skating in honor of loved ones in an effort to encourage people to raise funds for world class research to improve cancer survivorship as part of the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation’s Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer program. Join Scott Hamilton and guests for Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer as the community gathers together to raise money for cancer research on Feb. 9.

Believing that together it’s possible to turn cancer upside down, in the same way that Hamilton captured the adoration of crowds with his jaw-dropping backflips, his foundation introduced this peer-to-peer fundraising campaign in 2015. Over 60 successful events have already been held and more are scheduled across the nation. 

The Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation is a not-for-profit 501 c (3) dedicated to changing the future of cancer by funding advanced, innovative research that treats the cancer while sparing the patient. For information about the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation including finances please contact us.  Your contribution is deductible to the extent permitted by federal law.
