CANCER SURVIVORS AT THE SUMMIT. A Free Event to support the cancer community
Celebrating the triumph of the human spirit!
For twenty-four years Cancer Survivors at the Summit has been our premier community event. This event, held annually at Snowbird’s Ski and Summer Resort, pays tribute to the courage and determination of those affected by a cancer diagnosis - patients, survivors, caregivers, family members, and friends. And honors the memory of lives lost to cancer.
2021 marks the 24th year of this signature event benefiting cancer patients, cancer survivors, caregivers, and those who have lost a loved ones to a cancer diagnosis.
TRIBUTE FLAGS Modeled after traditional Tibetan prayer flags, Tribute Flags honor those affected by cancer, survivors and those who have passed away. Tribute flags are hung at The Summit at Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort during our event for viewing as hikers, runners, mountain bikers, and lift riders meet together at the summit to participate in a Celebration of Life ceremony. Following the event, flags are returned to those who purchased them as a keepsake from this powerful and often life changing experience.
CELEBRATION OF LIFE CEREMONY Held at the Snowbird Summit Lodge, the Celebration of Life Ceremony features inspirational speakers and live entertainment as you view the hundreds of tribute flags flying on the mountain side. These tribute flags are truly the heartbeat of this event and carry beautiful heartfelt messages for all to see.
