Elmhurst YMCA Skate for the Scholarship

Meet us at the rink for the Elmhurst YMCA’s Skate for the Scholarship! 

The Elmhurst YMCA is hosting its end-of-season ice rink challenge during the week of February 13! Participants will complete 10-minute challenges during skating lessons or after hockey games while raising money for the Elmhurst YMCA Scholarship Fund.

Family and friends are encouraged to sponsor participants by making a tax-deductible contribution to the Elmhurst YMCA Scholarship Fund. All dollars raised will go directly to providing financial assistance for youth, adults, and families so that they can enjoy the benefits of YMCA memberships, such as youth swim lessons, Skate School, Youth Hockey League, Day Camp, and much more!

A variety of prizes will be awarded!
