“Skate for Hope” Feb. 27

On Sunday, Feb. 27, head to “the Cooler” and take to the ice instead of the stands to support Camp Good Days, dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer or other debilitating challenges. The Colleges’ Hope House and the Skating Club have organized the fundraiser, “Skate for Hope,” with all proceeds from the $5 admission fee going to Camp Good Days.

The admission fee for Skate for Hope includes free skate time, rentals and a brief performance by the Skating Club, tentatively scheduled for 5 p.m. There will be hot chocolate, sweets and T-shirts available for purchase.

Camp Good Days is located in Mendon, N.Y., about 40 minutes from campus. It operates summer camp experiences as well as year-round events and activities for families.

Hope House is dedicated to increasing cancer awareness in the community as well as the importance of healthy habits in reducing the risk of developing cancer. In December, they organized the incredibly popular Penguin Plunge and previously sponsored a kick ball tournament to “Kick-Away-Cancer.”

“Skate for Hope” is one of many events organized by HWS community members to raise cancer awareness. Recently, the coaching staff of the Hobart men’s basketball team participated in the Coaches vs. Cancer program to raise awareness and indicate solidarity.

Skate for Hope will take place at the Geneva Recreational Complex, “the Cooler” Feb. 27 from 4 to 6 p.m.
