Skate with the Greyhounds


Meet the Soo Greyhounds, shake paws with Dash, and raise money for your team at this year’s Bell Celebrity Skate presented by Agero on November 13, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

This year the event will take place at the GFL Memorial Gardens. Admission is a minimum of $35 in pledges on behalf of Rotary youth projects, but participants who fundraise above-and-beyond can take home amazing prizes! Pledge sheets can be found here:

Or use the event as team fundraisers. Qualifying groups (sports teams, school groups, scouting clubs, etc.) of at least five members get back 50% of the total your group raised. It’s that simple! Every year we send tens of thousands of dollars to participating community groups. We provide the incentives and you won’t have to be worried about toting crates of cookies or having to buy all your child’s leftover chocolate bars. This year’s Team Fundraising Prizes include pool parties, bowling parties and collapsible virtual reality glasses. Call Rotary at 705-945-1279 to see if your team is eligible.

Team members and individual skaters can take home one of these 50 Individual Fundraising Incentives:
