After careful consideration, Skate It Forward has determined it’s in the best interest of the entire community to cancel the upcoming June 20th Ice Show.
Andrea G., Skate It Forward co-founder, captured all our sentiments: “I think of all the families out there worrying about the safety of their loved ones. It must be exponentially more frightening for those at the Ronald McDonald House. We were so sad to tell RMH we could not support them with our large donation this year.”
Our sincere gratitude to everyone for your support. We hope to see you for Skate It Forward 2021.
Skate It Forward is a charitable initiative hosted by The Skating Club of Central Ohio, in partnership with OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rinks, to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. We combine our love of ice sports with an intense desire to help those in our community who are in need.
We are so very lucky to have the world’s largest Ronald McDonald House right here in Columbus, Ohio. But, with the great expansion in research and facilities at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, the demand for RMH services will also significantly rise. We have the opportunity to help meet that demand.
In the last two years, cast members have raised over $60,000 to help families in need at RMH, making Skate It Forward its largest community fundraiser. We would be honored if you would join us!
Skate it Forward also would like to thank the Tortorella Family Foundation for their support as we welcome new Hockey Directors to our Board. We are very excited for the expansion to our program!
See you on the ice!
