Skate-a-Thon Fundraiser on Saturday, September 16

Promoting Healthy Active Lifestyles for People of All Ages & Abilities:

Carbon monoxide is a risk within ice rinks and many other indoor facilities. The Skating Club of Wilmington’s installation of a new integrated carbon monoxide monitoring system reflects our continuing commitment to the health and safety of our skaters and all who visit our facility. Of course, this commitment and the purchase come at a significant financial cost to a non-profit organization such as ours.

Therefore, SCW is holding a Skate-a-Thon Fundraiser on Saturday, September 16 to raise funds to help offset the financial impact of this expenditure. In conjunction with the Skate-a-Thon we will also be holding a Silent Auction and a Family & Friends Member Event at the Club.

The Skating Club is actively looking for sponsors for to the Event and to assist us with this important health & safety initiative. We are offering many sponsorship opportunities:

Project Sponsorship
Event Sponsorship
Silent Auction Donor
– …and more

The Skating Club of Wilmington has been promoting healthy active lifestyles through skating since 1964. We are unique in that we are a member owned non-profit rink which is open to the public. Through the generosity of our local community and companies such as yours, we look forward to providing people of all ages and abilities with skating programs and opportunities for many years to come.

If you are interested in sponsorship or learning more about our sponsorship opportunities, please just reply to this email and we will be in touch with you right away.

Sincerely,

The Families, Members & Management
of the Skating Club of Wilmington

Since 1968, Special Olympics has been spreading the message: people with intellectual disabilities can – and will – succeed when given the opportunity. And it all happens through the simple power of sport. At Special Olympics, we believe that sports can teach us all important lessons. When we train and strive for a goal, it teaches us to dream. When we struggle, it teaches us determination. When we win, we find joy. And if we lose, we can find the strength to try again.
