Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer


Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™, Bowling Green, OH

The word cancer is personal and holds a powerful weight to it.  So many people feel the weight of cancer either directly or know someone who has been impacted by cancer. 

The Slater Family Ice Arena and Northwest Ohio skating communities have joined forces with the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation to raise funds through Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer™!  We invite you to join us in our effort to Turn Cancer Upside Down™ and change the heavy weight that cancer brings through this celebration of strength, fight, and grace.
Read below to see how you can directly contribute to the fight against cancer.  No involvement is too small, whether it be participating in the 5K Skate,  registering to raise funds and skate in the exhibition, attend the celebration events, or donating any amount.  A portion of the funds raised will stay local and support the Mercy Health Foundation Greater Toledo.

Let’s unite as a community both on and off the ice and show how strong we can be together to Turn Cancer Upside Down™!
