We are looking forward to our very first annual “Skate the Lake” event – coming January 24, 2016.
On January 24th all registrants are invited to skate on a 2.5 km path around McKenzie Lake as many times as they feel comfortable with.
This first CCBCF event is inspired by Jordan Feradi, a courageous and determined young man whose life was taken at age eight, after being diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, an inoperable malignant tumor located in the brainstem. Jordan was an avid skater and hockey player, so this event is a fitting tribute to our hero and his favorite past time. The Skate the Lake event will be attended by many of Jordan’s family and friends, including a special group who make up the CCBCF Youth Council. These young supporters play an important role in organizing events like this with the goal to create awareness and raise funds to support medical researchers in their quest to find a cure for children’s brain cancer.
