Movember Let’s Skate! Fundraiser Public Roller Skate

There probably isn’t one of us who has not been affected by cancer in one way or another — #JointhePARDy in our #Movember open roller skate night, a fundraiser for the Peterborough Regional Health Centre Foundation, with a focus of supporting oncology work at the hospital. Admission fees will be donated to the PRHC, and additional donations welcomed and appreciated.

And, in keeping with the #Movember theme, free mustachios to the first 40 skaters!

As always, excellent tunes to get you out on the skate floor, and shaking off the things that have been weighing you down.

Please park in the North (Paved Lot) at the Village on Argyle, 780 Argyle Street, Peterborough, ON and enter through the Service Entrance — we can’t use the external gym door any more.

Open skate nights — everyone welcome — all ages.

Bring your own gear.

Non-league members are welcome! If you don’t have current CRDI insurance, you will need to sign a waiver.

We do have a small amount of gear available for rental at $5 for the night, contact us if you are interested and we will let you know if we have something that will fit you. PREBOOKING GEAR IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Don’t assume we’ll have what you need if you just show up!

There will be pop  available for purchase from PARD – $1
