SKATE 48 – Annual Fundraiser Has Gone Virtual!!!

We are going to run our fundraiser a little differently this year.  There won’t be any actual hockey games played, but we still need you to sign up on our web site – and carry on with the hard work of raising the funds to meet our community needs.

We have moved our fundraising efforts online this year and you have until February 27th to fundraise.  This will allow the Rotary Club of Kitchener Grand River to continue our work to support a variety of children’s charities.

Our success depends on you!

$0.00 / team


Since 1990, over $3.5 million has been raised! The one game challenge style tournament we’ve historically held has provided many entertaining and competitive hockey games, while raising funds for charities and other worthwhile causes in our community and throughout the world.

With SKATE48 running as a virtual event, participants are encouraged to raise funds throughout the community by collecting donations from family, friends and co-workers. Our on-line donation system makes it easy for you to raise funds.

Please download our Donation Form if you plan to collect donations in person, paid via cash or cheque…

There are great prizes for players that reach fundraising levels of $120, $300, $500 and $1000, plus we will later host a “Top 50 Party” for the top fundraisers, once we get public health approval. You don’t want to miss this great event since it always includes a talk by a featured guest.  Past guest speakers have included NHL players Walt McKechnie and  Marcel Dionne, who then signed autographs after their talks.

What better way to make a difference in the lives of less-fortunate children!
