Team up with Scott Hamilton and Turn Cancer Upside Down!
Everyone we know has in some way been touched by cancer. When you hear of this, your heart breaks and you wish there was something – anything you could do to change the impact of this dreaded disease on the people we know and love! The Skating Club of Greater Youngstown and Kidskate are inviting all SCGY members, surrounding clubs & community members the opportunity to partner with the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation to Turn Cancer Upside Down! Funds raised for the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation support cancer research with 20% of the funds raised through this Club initiative going directly to our local charity Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley.
We invite everyone to join us for our Club Wide Kick Off to the Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer – Youngstown effort by joining in on the Frozen 5K! Get registered by clicking the Green Button, get your pledge sheet (click here for your pledge form) and start raising funds by having your friends & family sponsor you by laps or by a pledged sum. For the Frozen 5K we will be skating 35 laps at the Covelli Centre on Sunday January 14, 2018 at 2:00pm. Then, continue fundraising with fellow participants to reach our goal of $25,000 and join Scott Hamilton for the on-ice celebration and exhibition “Classics On Ice” 2:00pm Saturday, April 22, 2018. There are lots of ways to get involved.
