    Tony Wheeler's very positive review of the show: http://www.flutzingaround.com/2013/06/skate-for-hope-10th-anniversary-show.html
    Abbott's "Bring Him Home": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj3lKHhbV3o
    Emily Samuelson/Lee Harris' duet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YYo-h3dzCc

    Partial videos:
    Gao's "You Raise Me Up": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEquvmCjUOE
    Rippon's "A Song for You": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB8zeuwjwpQ
    Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmDVW0O5zLg

    I believe IceNetwork eventually will put up videos from the show like last year, including backstage interviews by Doug Mattis.

    Great show in Cowtown Saturday night! It took me 10 minutes to drive over to Nationwide Arena in the Arena District & I found parking space right in front. Nationwide Arena is one of the most convenient places I've ever been to see a show (Attention Columbus convention people - why no Nationals here yet??:confused:) Next someone gave me a free ticket for the show - thank you kind lady & I will pay it forward by sending a donation to the organization. :)

    I've become a regular at this show. I really like the structure of it, which is based on the young skaters raising funds for cancer research so they can participate in the performance. These are not primadonnas demanding their moment in the spotlight, but kids who rolled up their shirtsleeves & did some worthwhile work to earn their spot. There is a wide range of ages & skill levels & you can tell they have tried to polish their moves & are happy to be there. Good for them & it's keeps me clapping for the whole two hours!

    The standout numbers for me this year were Adam Rippon, Christina Gao, Emily Samuelson & Lee Harris, & Jeremy Abbott.

    See you next year Skate for Hope!

    Just curious, where was Paul Poirier? I thought he would perform with Piper, but he hasn't been in any of the photos or videos.

    Bumping this thread up 5 months later to post the link to IceNetwork's video of the show (just over an hour long) that was uploaded on Nov. 13: http://web.icenetwork.com/video/v31219763
    (I believe it should be viewable for non-subscribers as well?)
