Nicole's Heart Foundation 5K Run/Walk

Please join my Garden State Skating Club as we come out to help and support the 2nd Annual Nicole Heart Foundation 5K Run/Walk.  The event is to honor the memory of Nicole Trott who passed away from an undiagnosed congenital heart defect, just days after her 18th birthday and high school graduation in 2011.  The Foundation's mission is to foster greater awareness and education of the importance of cardiac screening and prevent future sudden unexpected tragedies from this illness.  Proceeds of the event will help fund cardiac screening for high school athletes. These pre-sport heart screenings are not cost effective because athletic sudden cardiac death is a rare event.

Stay heart healthy & strong!

2018 Olympic Ice Dancing Viewing Party

I invite all my skating friends and learn-to-skate students to come over and enjoy a night of Olympics ice dancing. I think it will be the best skating event of this year's Games because we have three amazingly talented U.S. dance teams with such different distinct styles and any one of these teams can earn a medal. I am most excited to watch my all-time favorite Canadian dance team, Virtue and Moir.  They truly are THE best ice dancers I've ever watched.  I just love all their programs because they're absolutely captivating and spellbinding and most of all, their music interpretation and complicated skating skills always leave me mesmerized.  

It's President's weekend and there's no school Monday, so come on over and let's watch and enjoy some great ice dancing together!
