CSC Jimmy Fund Snow Challenge, Feb. 6

Hit the slopes at Nashoba Valley Ski Area to help the Jimmy Fund in the fight against cancer


WESTFORD, Mass.—Put on your boots and goggles. Grab your skis or snowboard. It is time to hit the slopes for the 15th annual CSC Jimmy Fund Snow Challenge. Skiers and snowboarders of all abilities are invited to Nashoba Valley Ski Area on Saturday, Feb. 6, for team and individual racing to support cancer research and care for adults and children at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through its Jimmy Fund. The day-long event includes an outdoor barbecue lunch, après ski party and auction. 

“We hope all skiers and snowboarders join us at the mountain to have fun and help us raise money to battle cancer,” says Didier Putzeys, Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) Senior Partner. “CSC and its volunteers have been dedicated to the Jimmy Fund and the Snow Challenge for more than a decade to help experts at Dana-Farber find a cure for a disease that has affected all of us in some way.”

Helping with the fundraising effort is easy. The entry fee for a four-person race team is $240 and for individual racers, $60.   For every $150 raised above the registration fee, one second is deducted from the final race time, so everyone has a chance to win!  Skiers and snowboarders who don’t want to race have the option to buy a lift ticket with lunch for $60 to benefit the Jimmy Fund. Registration is at the mountain the day of the event beginning at 9 a.m. Lunch starts at 11:30 a.m., racing at noon, and awards get underway at 3 p.m. There will also be a silent auction featuring some great prizes in the lodge all day.

The CSC Jimmy Fund Snow Challenge is Nashoba Valley’s only charity race at the mountain. Nashoba Valley is in Westford, Mass, just 45 minutes from Boston, featuring 100 percent snowmaking and wide-open, tree-lined trails. For directions, go to www.skinashoba.com.
