Sunday is the last day to bid on one of seven spots in a ski clinic put on by Scott Macartney.

The recently retired Macartney competed in the 2002 and 2006 Olympics and narrowly missed a spot on the 2010 team. The seven spots go to the top bidders.

All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. Macartney’s mother is a cancer survivor.

The 24-hour ski events have raised more than $1 million since it was founded by Tacoma’s Dave Ludwig in 2004.
