(Video) Shred for Red fundraiser combines Olympians and cancer research at Deer Valley
Deer Valley Resort opened its slopes Saturday, and one organization used the opportunity to raise money for cancer research. Shred for Red, hosted by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, gave participants a scavenger hunt across the mountain, and gave teams the opportunity to ski with an Olympian. Brian Fletcher, two-time Nordic combined Olympic athlete and blood cancer survivor, partnered with the event and recruited other athletes to team up with participants.
Quincey Cummings and Mitchell Andrus, two Parkites, turned their experience in sailing and hospitality into an adventure travel business, which as an adventure of its own.
