Skate-a-thon fundraiser

Rotary members Jack Van Delden, Paul Ventura and Scott McDermott were among the volunteers who initialed lap cards during the Rotary Club of Sylvan Lake’s skate-a-thon sessions held in November. The event helps many groups raise money for their programs. Involved this year were hockey teams, Brownies, Guides and the newly formed Sylvan Lake Rotary Interact Club.

Overall the skate-a-thon raised about $20,000, said coordinator Marla Maher. Rotary received 25 per cent for organizing the event and donated that money to KidSport. The other 75 per cent went to the participating groups.

The top teams were Dynamite 2 Lakers raising $2,765.50; Peewee Boys AA Lakers raising $2,570 and Atom AA Lakers raising $2,108.75. Top fundraisers were Tyson Tisdale ($550), Heath White ($420) and Ethan Weberg ($390).
