(Alta, WY – March 24, 2014) Grand Targhee Resort announces The Pattie
Layser Mary’s Nipple Challenge on Saturday April 4, 2015. The name
of the event is in memory of Pattie Layser who acted as the driving force
behind the fundraiser along with the Great Old Broads For Wilderness.
All funds raised will be donated to the St. John’s Medical Center
Oncology Fund and earmarked for breast cancer patients. The Oncology Fund
offers financial assistance to cancer patients, helping cover costs of
prostheses, travel costs associated with radiation treatments, and house
cleaning services for patients going through treatment.
The event kicks off at 11:00am and participants have three hours to complete
as many laps as possible. Any donation amount is appreciated.
Prizes that will be awarded:
- Largest Donations Raised - 2015/2016 Season Pass
- Most Laps Completed - 2015 Bluegrass Festival weekend pass
Supporters can also purchase Prayer flags and turn Mary’s Pink! Leave
a message for a loved one and help raise money for those who will need
help at a difficult time. A message flag will be a $25 donation to put
a message on one prayer flag or $50 for 3 flags. The prayer flags will
be raised up on the top of Mary’s for their messages to be carried
on by the wind. A photo will be taken of the prayer flags and sent to
all people who donated to the prayer flag fund.

Grand Targhee Resort is a year round mountain resort situated on the western
slope of the Tetons in Alta, Wyoming, accessible through Teton Valley,
Idaho. Tucked among spectacular Teton views and national forest land,
Grand Targhee is an intimate summer getaway for adventure-seekers, with
miles of lift-accessed hiking, running and mountain biking trails, renowned
music festivals and a variety of activities in a pristine high alpine
environment. During the winter, the abundance of light powder snow (more
than 500 inches annually) and virtual lack of lift lines creates an uncrowded
skier and snowboarder paradise, continually recognized for great snow,
genuine western hospitality, scenic beauty and excellent value. Grand
Targhee is excited to announce the Bike Park was named the #1 Best Bike
Park in the Northwest by MTBParks.com. For more information, please visit
