The Skate-A-Thon provides a great opportunity for families, friends and neighbors near and far to support the Blades, an organization that teaches our girls so many wonderful values – including sportsmanship, teamwork and the value of hard work. The Skate-A-Thon helps support the costs such as competition fees, costumes, travel costs and team events of 38 skaters on the 3 synchronized skating teams of the Glenview Blades. This year’s Skate-A-Thon is an exhibition of all 3 teams followed by Friday Night Skate Party beginning at 8:10 p.m. on September 30.
In stressing the importance of charity and giving, the Glenview Blades are pleased to announce that 10% of the proceeds from the Skate-A-Thon and Friday Night Skate Party admission will be donated to Northfield Food Pantry (http://www.twp.northfield.il.us/pantry.html)! The Northfield Food Pantry assists township residents who are unable to provide enough food for themselves and their families. A continuous 1.5 hours of skating during the Skate-A-Thon/Friday Night Skate Party will be dedicated to Northfield Food Pantry.
Thank you for your support! Watch our video to see the teams in action.
