“Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™ is the only program of its kind in the world of figure skating,” said Scott Hamilton. “We’ve had so much fun and success in this program that we are now celebrating new success with hockey. Skaters of all descriptions, ages, and abilities coming together to save lives! Skaters changing our world for the better! I’m so honored to play a part in this movement.”

Figure skating icon and cancer survivor Scott Hamilton has been leading the charge to fund innovative cancer research and encouraging skaters around the country to lace up and Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™. 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.
