Skiing Birkie For Hope
February 19, 2003
Jim Owens wants to show he's a cancer survivor, not a victim, and hopes to be racing yet another Birkie this weekend even as he's in the middle of chemotherapy. Jim will be sporting a Swix suit provided by Gear West and adorned with the signatures of fellow patients from Minnesota Oncology. Cheer him in on Saturday!
