18th edition - Rob Lutterman - Ski for a cure

A sunny and successful 18th edition of Rob Lutterman – Ski for a Cure!

The sun shone bright for all those who participated the event at Mont Sutton on February the 18th, 2017. Thanks to family and friends, nearly $50,000 was raised this year to help fund research into pancreatic cancer.

This annual fundraising event is held in memory of avid skier Rob Lutterman who died of pancreatic cancer in 1999 at the age of 63. The Rob Lutterman - Ski for a Cure event has been a beacon of hope for pancreatic research in Canada. Thanks to the event and the accompanying Rob Lutterman Memorial Fund, over $1.2M have been distributed to research dedicated to pancreatic cancer.
