Kids Helping Kids be Kids


The Bell Celebrity Skate & Swim presented by Agero has been an important fundraiser for youth in our community for over twenty years.  The Rotary Club of Sault Ste. Marie is so close to reaching a cumulative total of one million dollars raised for Rotary Youth Projects, but we can only do it with the Sault’s help!

Taking place Tuesday, November 8th at the John Rhodes Community Centre from 6pm to 9pm, the event will include swimming in the pool and skating with the Soo Greyhounds. Admission is a minimum of $35 in pledges, but participants who fundraise above-and-beyond the entrance requirement will take home amazing prizes.

This event isn’t just for individuals – it’s also a fantastic team fundraiser! To participate as a group, you must have a minimum of five members participate by raising the minimum of $35 per person.  After the event, as long as you qualify as a team, Rotary will send you a cheque for 50% of the total your group raised.  It’s that simple!
