Thank you to all our hosts, guests, participants, sponsors and volunteers for supporting the Celebrity Skate for Easter Seals Kids. Information on the 2018 event will be made available in the near future so be sure to check back here for updates. We look forward to seeing you there!
A special thank you to NHL stars, Matt Murray, Robert Bortuzzo and Carter Hutton who made it an extra-special day for the many fans who joined us at Thunder Bay Tournament Centre for a fun summer-time skate. Easter Seals Ontario would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to our generous community partners and to everyone who donated and participated – we couldn’t have done it without your support.
Over the past 14 years, Skate has raised over $165,000 for Easter Seals Kids – Thank You!

Raise a minimum of $50 in pledges to join the fun and excitement of skating with local NHL players while raising funds for children and youth with physical disabilities.

Autograph opportunities will take place after the skate, one autograph per player per child participating!
For the past 94 years, Easter Seals has played an important role in providing support for children and youth with physical disabilities from all ethnic and religious backgrounds. Thanks to its generous donors, Easter Seals continues to offer programs to allow kids to experience freedom, independence and a sense of accomplishment. Easter Seals helps by providing financial assistance for mobility equipment, communication devices and summer camp opportunities at its two fully accessible properties, Camp Merrywood and Camp Woodeden. Together we are helping kids BE KIDS.
