Skate To Great @ Big Brothers Big Sister Holiday Party

The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto Holiday Party was sponsored and made possible by JAM Direct. Skate To Great made sure every kid got their own pair of skates to keep and take home and with the generous support of $5000 from FedEx Express Canada each kid received their own brand new helmet. Thanks to Skate Canada for sanctioning the event and to Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier for donating their time performing and helping to teach kids how to skate. Thanks to StorageMart Gives for collecting and always storing our donated skates, Lowe’s Home Improvement for providing bins for all the skates, The Figure Skating Boutique for the hundreds of skates they’ve donated to Skate To Great and assisting with skate guards and gloves for the kids. Parm Parmar for her time with publicity along with Lauren Clegg from Ryerson Digital Media Zone, Chris Dale for photography, The Ryerson RAMS Men’s & Women’s Hockey and Figure Skating teams for their support. To the countless people who were involved, all of our volunteers and people who donated their pair of skates, thank you! We’re always still collecting skates for other organizations, schools and kids who need them, visit to find a list of skate donation locations.
