World Champion skier and cancer survivor Kikkan Randall is coming to Grand Rapids for MSU Gran Fondo 7!

At the Pyeongchang Olympics in 2018, Kikkan made history winning gold in cross-country skiing. Just three months later, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite a grueling treatment of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, Kikkan remained very active – running, cycling, weight lifting, hiking and more. She finished treatment earlier this year.

Meet the World Champion athlete who fought for the gold, then fought for her life.
