Pattie Layser Mary’s Nipple Challenge

IMG 0389

The Pattie Layser Mary’s Nipple Challenge will be held Saturday, April 4, 2015 from noon to 3:00pm at Grand Targhee Resort.  All funds raised will be donated to the St. John’s Medical Center Oncology Fund and earmarked for breast cancer patients. The Oncology Fund offers financial assistance to cancer patients, helping cover costs of prostheses, travel costs associated with radiation treatments, and house cleaning services for patients going through treatment.

Supporters can also purchase Prayer flags and turn Mary’s Pink! Leave a message for a loved one and help raise money for those who will need help at a difficult time. A message flag will be a $25 donation to put a message on one prayer flag or $50 for 3 flags. The prayer flags will be raised up on the top of Mary’s for their messages to be carried on by the wind. A photo will be taken of all the prayer flags and sent to all people who donated to the prayer flag fund.

Race Details

Participants will first gather sponsors, who must commit to either a flat sum donation or a $ per vertical foot. Participants must enter with a minimum $50 donation. Keep track of your donations. All funds raised will be donated to the St. John’s Medical Center Oncology Fund and earmarked for breast cancer patients.

The Main event of the fundraiser is a timed lap challenge on Mary’s Nipple. Mary’s Nipple is an in-bounds peak with advanced intermediate terrain. Skiers and snowboarders will hike up the boot pack to the peak of Mary’s Nipple, and ski or ride back down to the start of the hike to complete a lap. Participants may opt to ski back to the base and take the Dreamcatcher up and traverse to the bootpack. Participants will begin at noon on Saturday, February 22 and the last valid lap must be started by 3 pm at the beginning of the boot pack. The goal is to complete as many laps as possible in the three-hour time-frame. Participants who are interested in less rigorous options may take Dreamcatcher lift laps, or just simply make a donation through our Snowed In for The Cure option, any donation amount is accepted.

All race participants who raise $50 or more will receive a lift ticket to race and a T-shirt. All Snowed in for the cure participants that raise $50 or more will receive a T-shirt
