The TCFSC skaters worked really hard for this years skate-A-thon.
It was a fun morning, topped off by a donation to each skater who participated by Centre ICE!!!
Thank you to Terri Marchand and Centre ICE for the support they continue to give to the club.
Our skaters were well ready for the start of the annual event ... and they gave everything they had to accomplish their goals!
Our annual skate-a-thon is a fun and fit activity for all of our club members.
The funds raised for general club members are split 60/40 – skater account/club.
Learn to skate members are encouraged to participate as well.
Skaters set realistic lap goals based on skill level.
Our goal is to help the fundraising committee raise at least $15,000 to fund the Christmas show,
the annual ice show in March, the Cherry Classic competition, test sessions, and to keep ice costs down.
&bbsp; We hope that each family will participate in the skate-a-thon to the best of its ability.
If each family raises $300, we will achieve our goal.
We’re hoping to make this skate-a-thon a great success, so the more contributions you raise,
the more successful we’ll be at achieving our goal.
Thank you very much for your participation!
