BEMIDJI FIGURE SKATING CLUB
& SANFORD HEALTH
Smucker's is calling on U.S. Figure Skating clubs around the country to help support Team USA and their families on their journey to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea. Destination PyeongChang Skate-a-Thons will serve as a way for U.S. Figure Skating member clubs to help raise funds and awareness for the Destination PyeongChang
Fifty percent of proceeds raised at Destination PyeongChang Skate-a-Thons will support the host club and its efforts to give local skaters more on-ice opportunities; the other 50 percent will support the Destination PyeongChang Family Tree Program.
Skaters of all ages are invited to participate. In support of your club's efforts, Smucker's will match up to $10,000 raised by Skate-a-Thon participants. We're all in this together!
Dear Skaters and Families,
The Bemidji FSC Skate-a-Thon will be held Saturday December 16th from 4:30p.m.-6:30p.m at Neilson-Reise Rink. We would like all Learn to Skate and Advanced skaters to participate in the skate-a-thon. It is our goal to have a fun on ice experience for skaters, their families, and the community.
We would like skaters to take donations to help raise money for Destination PyeongChang Family Tree and the Bemidji FSC. Please use the donation sheet found at usfigu.re/DPCPledge_Sheets to secure donations. We recommend that you take direct donations rather than a per lap pledge to eliminate having to revisit your friends and family to collect donations. We recommend you secure a minimum amount of $20 in donations. If you need additional pledge sheets you can download and print the Destination PyeongChang pledge sheet at Skate-A-Thon pledge sheet at usfigu.re/DPCPledge_Sheets.
Community members, parents, and siblings of the skaters will be invited to skate for a $5 donation. Pledge sheets and donations will be turned in the day of the Skate-a-Thon.
We are looking for volunteers to help this day run smoothly. We are looking for 30 minute to one-hour time slots in concessions, lap counters, entrance table and game workers. Please go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/ 4090a4caba828aafd0-destination and sign up to volunteer at the Skate-a-Thon.
Participants are encouraged to share the event, and share how many laps they skated on social media by tagging #SkateTogether. Bemidji FSC club will receive a shout out from US Figure Skating when our participants use the hash tag #SkateTogether.
Watch your emails for more information about the Bemidji FSC Skate-a-Thon. If your skater would like to perform their competition program please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be put in a drawing to skate.
Thank you for your help in making this event a success.
