Opportunity skate (Opp Skate) is Family Ice's donor funded outreach program whose mission is to bring skating sports to children and adults with physical, mental and social deficiencies. Opportunity Skate offers skating opportunities to youth groups disadvantaged children, senior citizens, teens at risk and programs that support people with cognitive and physical disabilities. Through this program, we introduce a fun and healthy recreational activity to people whose obstacles might otherwise prevent them from skating. Opportunity Skate helps build character, self-esteem and a sense of self-worth through skating.
The program serves over 2,000 individuals and 50 different organizations each year.
Generous donors to Opp Skate include The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital and The Dudley Foundation.
