    I think it's terrific that Melissa and Dennis are so involved in trying to create opportunities for kids who may have a harder road than they had. Bridgeport is a pretty rough city, so I would imagine that the chance to try something new and fun in a sheltered place must be a welcome respite for these kids.

    This sounds like a wonderful program, best of luck to Melissa & Denis with it, and of course to all of the young skaters as well!

    I love seeing skaters give back to their communities and the sport. Kudos to Melissa and Denis for such a great program.
