Kids Skating For Kids

The Peoria Jr. Rivermen Hockey Team was looking for a way to give back to the community. Knowing that they are fortunate to be healthy and active, the team decided to raise money for Children’s Hospital of Illinois where children are challenged with health issues on a daily basis. The first-time “Kids Skating for Kids” skate-a-thon was held on December 21st at the Peoria Park District Owens Center. Each team member worked to gather pledges from family and friends for skating 100 laps around the rink in one hour. The team’s fundraising efforts were a great success. The group recently visited the hospital and presented donations totaling more than $5,000! 

Thank you to this group for turning an activity they love into an opportunity to help other children become healthy enough to participate in their favorite activities!
