8th Annual Hope on the Slopes in Breckenridge Benefits the American Cancer Society


8th Annual Hope on the Slopes in Breckenridge Benefits the American Cancer Society. The 8th Annual Hope on the Slopes of Breckenridge on February 23, 2013 provides skiers and snowboarders an opportunity to make their day of skiing or riding more meaningful by raising money and awareness for the American Cancer Society, the nation’s #1 non-profit contributor of funds for cancer research. The 2013 event, hosted by the Breckenridge Ski Resort, strives to have 300 participants, raise $80,000 and continue to remember and honor those affected by cancer. The 2012 event in Breckenridge had over 260 participants, raised $74,000 and honored many survivors and loved ones touched by cancer.

While at the Hope on the Slopes, both teams and individuals will compete for fantastic prizes on two levels: dollars raised through fundraising and an Epic Mix Ski/Snowboarding Competition. Skiers and boarders of all ages and skill levels are welcome. Friends, family, and colleagues are encouraged to form teams to make every run count towards the fight against cancer. Participants registered online with Hope on the Slopes are eligible for discounted lift tickets and lodging. Deals on equipment rentals are available for participants through Brecksports.com.

The festivities include a weekend of exciting events in Breckenridge. There is a pre-party on Thursday, February 21, 2013 from 5 pm – 7:30 pm at Earl’s Kitchen and Bar in Lone tree, with great specials and proceeds going to support the mission of the American Cancer Society. A post-party will be announced soon, and events are open to the public. Everyone is encouraged to attend and support a great cause to find a cure and fight back against cancer.

The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end cancer for good. As a global grassroots force of three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping you stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early, helping you get well by being there for you during and after a diagnosis, by finding cures through groundbreaking discovery and fighting back through public policy. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.5 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year. To learn more about us or to get help, call us anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.

This has certainly not been my experience with the facebook mobile app. In fact, the facebook mobile app for Android has been such a horrible UI for me, that I’ve deleted it from my phone.

Quick is a relative term

There was nothing to indicate that there needed to be a “quick” setup. Also, quick, appears to be a relative term.

Sign ups for Google+ has now been out for about a week or so, and got summarily shut down due to an, “insane demand,” according to Google.

There seems to be as with many devices and tools, polar opposites of thought regarding Google+. There is the camp that heralds Google+ as the greatest thing since sliced bread. There is also the camp that has had nothing but trouble and SPAM with their accounts and have thusly deleted them.

Now, in the spirit of full disclosure, I don’t have a Google+ account, so my observations are just from conversations I’ve had with those who have an account. Observations are also from conversations and reading posts on various social media sites.

I’ve posted and done an audio post regarding Google+ and the sudden closure of new signups. I have yet to read an credible account of why and how Google’s Marketing and Implementation Departments totally missed peoples rabid interest in signing up for a new Google Product.

What I’m also finding puzzling and baffling are the recent posts regarding making changes to Google+. I’ve seen posts, for making Google+ look like your Facebook experience. I’ve seen posts to make your Facebook experience to look like your Google+ experience. Now what’s most curious, to me, is why you would want to do either of these? If your not happy with Google+ and want to make it like Facebook, why are you continuing to use Google+? Likewise, if you want to make your Facebook like Google+, why are you continuing to use Facebook?

Hopefully within the near future, Google will get Google+ sorted out and more of us will have the opportunity to see what all the fuss has been all about.
