HANCOCK, Massachusetts — On Sunday, February 10th Jiminy Peak will host the annual St. Jude Ski Express, a fundraising event for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Guests may make a $5 donation and receive a wristband good to “cut the lift line” at the Berkshire Express. Guests must also have a Jiminy Peak lift ticket or season pass valid that day to board the lifts. St. Jude volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the hospital and sell wristbands and “enter to win” drawing tickets. The drawing will be held in the afternoon and all who purchase a wristband will receive a drawing ticket and the chance to win some great prizes.

St Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. No family ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay. St Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its fund-raising organization.
