Ice skating for a cause


Ice skating is not just recreational fun but can also be channeled toward a cause; more specifically Skate for Cancer. The upcoming event will empower young athletes to better support a friend or family member diagnosed with cancer.

Skating for a cause will take place on March 15 at the Peaks Ice Area in Provo.
Skating for a cause will take place on March 15 at the Peaks Ice Arena in Provo.

Brianna Hatch, one of Peaks Ice Arena’s professional coaching staff, declared this in regards to the event:

“The evening will be centered on sharing our talents to show honor to victims touched by this disease,”Hatch said. “This promises to be a wonderful evening of live performances by the skaters. Our Cancer Benefit Show is a unique way for us to show our love and support to local families and individuals who desperately need our help.”

Figure skating is a sport that embodies strength and big dreams — this is the influence that Skate for Cancer hopes to utilize about figure skating.

The event Skate for Cancer will help those affected by cancer by teaming up with the Intermountain Hospital and raise money and awareness to support local victims.

The event also includes having many BYU students and skating athletes who have performed on an international and national level.

After the event there will be free public skating and opportunities for winning prizes donated by Intermountain Hospital and Peaks Ice Arena.

During a silent auction a collectors’ skate donated by the Harlick Skating Boot company autographed by Olympic gold medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White and silver medalists Tessa Virture and Scott Moir will be available for bidding.
