Many help make event a success

Dear Editor:We would like to extend our deepest and sincerest thanks to all those individuals who participated in, volunteered, donated to, or sponsored a hole for a cancer survivor during the Bode Miller Golf Classic benefiting the Aspen Cancer Survivor Center last month. The event was a huge success and raised nearly $50,000, of which 100 percent goes to directly to cover the costs of providing health services for cancer survivors. As a new nonprofit organization in the valley, we were deeply moved by the generosity and support for our center. We would like to publicly acknowledge Bode Miller, Ursula Greg, Casey Puckett, Gretchen Blieler, Kristina Koznick, Craig Ward, Tammy Jacques-Grewel and John Callahan – Olympians who participated in the event on our behalf. Money raised from the event helps cancer survivors to pursue a healthy and productive post-cancer treatment life. It helps survivors answer the question, “Now what?” Because cancer treatment may leave a cancer survivor without any medical/insurance benefits, we offer scholarships for those individuals who may not be able to cover the cost of services and will continue to do so with the help of grants and benefits such as this one. Aspen is and always has been a wonderful community and through your generosity, we hope to continue to provide a valuable service to those living through cancer.Riggs Klika, Kathleen Callahan, Amy CovingtonCancer Survivor CenterAspen
