I'm very excited to announce the "Skate for Love" exhibition that will benefit the cancer foundation Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Focusing on the friends and families of cancer victims, "Skate for Love" will represent those who have lost loved ones due to the disease and recognize how they supported the people most important to them.
The event takes place at 7:00 PM on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at the William G. Mennen Sports Arena in Morristown, New Jersey. The show has attracted many big names in the skating world, past, present, and future, including 2007 National Silver Medalist Emily Hughes, 2-time US Bronze Medalist Ashley Wagner, 2006 World Champion Kimmie Meissner, 2-time Junior Grand Prix Finalist Christina Gao, 1995 US National Champion Nicole Bobek, 2010 European Bronze Medalist Elene Gedevanishvili,1996 Swiss National Champion and International Competitor Lucinda Ruh, 9-Time National Competitor Parker Pennington, 2011 Eastern Sectional Champion Samantha Cesario, and 2010 US Junior Pairs Champion Felicia Zhang. In addition, many other young skaters will be featured including the event's chief organizers, Taiwanese Ladies Champion Corinna Lin and Junior Ladies competitor Madison Olivieri.
Hosting the event will be 2002 Olympic Bronze Medalist Timothy Goebel and skating superstar JoJo Starbuck, with a guest appearance by 1982 World Champion Elaine Zayak.
