Focused on a Cure: Pink at the Rink [Skateland USA]

We had our first skating fundraiser - "Pink at the Rink" - at Skateland USA in Kannapolis, NC this Wednesday. We had a great turnout and raised over $300 in just a few hours.... and had an absolute blast while doing it!

Thank you to the Frye's Amusements for their generosity!!! We hope to do this again soon!

To see all the candids from the night, check out the Pink at the Rink album on our facebook fan page at
