John Bernal's Great Skate Winterfest Page
Thank you for visiting my Great Skate fundraising page!
During the Grand Rapids Griffins' Jan. 18-19 event, I'll skate for one hour with fans at Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids, helping raise awareness and funds for the Griffins Youth Foundation.
The foundation provides opportunities for 350 kids – many of whom are underprivileged, underserved or have other special needs – to participate in the great sport of hockey at no cost. Programs include hockey for first through 12th graders, a girls-only division, as well as the Grand Rapids Sled Wings sled hockey team for physically challenged kids and teens.
Please help support this great organization by sponsoring my participation in the Great Skate. No donation is too small, as each dollar provides 10 minutes of ice time for one of the foundation’s players.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
