Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™ is the nationwide peer-to-peer fundraiser for the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (CARES). In partnership with U.S. Figure Skating as well as clubs and ice facilities, registered fundraising participants are signing up to make a difference. Countless individuals have been touched by cancer and it is our mission to Turn Cancer Upside Down™ together!
Register to Participate and Fundraise
Through individual donations and sponsorships, participants raise money on behalf of CARES through their own networks of friends, family, coworkers, local businesses, and community supporters. Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™ fundraisers culminate in an exciting On-Ice Celebration, where the community comes together to commemorate their fundraising efforts and honor those they know impacted by cancer.
Donate to Support Cancer Research
By donating to a Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™ participant's fundraising goal, you're not only supporting them but helping CARES fund innovative cancer research. Locally, CARES partners with a like-minded Charity of Choice in each host city who receives a portion of the event;'s net proceeds to further their mission and make an impact in their community.

Our Founder Scott Hamilton, who spent most of his career upside down in the rink doing his signature backflip, has taken his platform as an Olympic Gold Medalist and used his force for good, establishing the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (CARES) and empowering all of us to Turn Cancer Upside Down™! Launched in 2014, CARES is national 501(c)3 dedicated to changing the future of cancer by funding advanced, innovative research that treats the cancer while sparing the patient.
Thanks to our dedicated community of supporters, CARES has provided funding to like-minded charities nationwide for research, cancer patient support services and cancer patient ancillary services. CARES, which stands for Cancer Alliance for Research, Education, and Survivorship, is creating a network built on strong partnerships with leading institutions, cancer organizations, and researchers from across the nation.
