about Ski4e

Ethan Glaser, affectionately known as "E" by his closest friends, is the son of Debbie and Chad Glaser of East Amherst, N.Y. Ethan was born with a rare liver disease, Biliary Atresia. On June 6, 2003, Chad was honored to be a live liver donor for his son's transplant, and gave Ethan the ultimate gift, The Gift of Life!

In March, 2007 the Glaser’s started off on their venture to raise money and awareness for critically ill children with liver disease all around the country. This is truly a home grown Buffalo, N.Y. foundation. Chad & Debbie along with their closest friends raised $20,000.00 at the first ever Ski4e event. In 2008 Ski4e raised over twice this amount, and to date this organization has raised over $150,000.00 to support research, advocate for pediatric insurance rights, and financially assist children in need of a liver transplant.

On March 5th and 6th, 2011, Ski4e will celebrate its five year anniversary with its annual fund raising weekend. On Saturday March 5th “Party for the Cure” will be held at the Brookfield Country Club, and Sunday March 6th we will ski at The Buffalo Ski Club in Colden NY. Funds raised will be donated to our 2011 Ski4e child through COTA (Children’s Organ Transplant Association), Buffalo Woman's and Children's Hospital / University of Buffalo Pediatric G.I. Department, and Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York- Presbyterian Center for Liver Disease.

All donations are 100% tax deductible. Registration and payment for this event can be made here at ski4e.com. If you are unable to attend we hope you will consider making a donation towards this special cause.
