This afternoon U.S. Figure Skating announced a new partnership with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). ASCO will be title sponsor for Skate America which will take place in Lake Placid November 12-15.
"The figure skating family has been impacted by cancer in so many ways over the years," said David Raith, executive director of U.S. Figure Skating. "Through a partnership with ASCO, we have the opportunity to help educate millions of people about the resources that are available to them in the battle against cancer."
"Just as skaters rely on their coaches for advice and guidance, people with cancer can rely on Cancer.Net to get the most trusted, doctor-approved information to guide them through their diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship," said Allen Lichter, MD, CEO of ASCO. "ASCO is pleased to partner with Skate America to bring this valuable information to people everywhere."
Whan an exciting development for U.S. Figure Skating...good things have been happening this year for them!
