Supporting Karen Gains Momentum

Thu, 12 Feb 2015

Skate Canada BC/YK Section is pleased to announce that the Rossland SC in the Kootenay Region is donating the proceeds of their Ice Show March 11th to the Karen Magnussen support fund. “We are thrilled to see such support coming from all over the province and in fact North America for one of our own in such need. We commend and thank the Rossland SC for their show of support to Karen who has given so much to our skating community over her lifetime," said Ted Barton Executive Director of Skate Canada BC/YK.

Skate Canada BC/YK began the initiative to support Karen as a result of her severe injuries of an ammonia poising during one of her coaching sessions. Karen is unable to work and in fact can not enter an arena any more. The Connaught SC in Richmond were the first to join the initiative by dedicating a show March 14th in providing outstanding support to the effort.
