Ruby Cup draws crowd to Lee Canyon

Lee Canyon recently hosted the third annual Ruby Cup, a fundraiser race benefiting the Nevada Donor Network.

In all, 95 skiers and snowboarders of all ages and ability levels hit the slopes to help raise more than $2,000 for the Nevada Donor Network.

Lee Canyon covered the $20 race registration fee for each registered donor, including participants who registered to become a donor at the event. Officials said 100 percent of race fees benefitted the Nevada Donor Network.

The Nevada Donor Network also had a team on site collecting additional monetary donations and assisting those who wanted to make a difference by signing up to be an organ donor.

The race, held in memory of local snowboarder and donor Chris Ruby, also featured live music and raffles at the Jan. 13 event.

Ruby, a 20-year-old Las Vegas resident and snowboarder, passed away in 2014. A registered organ donor, Ruby’s donated organs and tissues have helped 90 patients.
