Bruins fans of all ages can register to skate at one of the five FMC participating rinks. Each skate date will be a private Neely SK8 event. Skaters can create their very own personalized fundraising page for family and friends to make a pledge and to follow participants’ fundraising progress by visiting www.camneelyfoundation.org
. A complete list of skate dates and rink locations can be found below.
A number of prizes will be awarded throughout the Neely SK8 Challenge. Each skater will receive an official Neely SK8 Challenge t-shirt with his or her $8 dollar registration fee. The t-shirts will be distributed at each individual skate. The individual who raised the most money at each of the participating rinks will receive an official Cam Neely autographed jersey.
The top four SK8 fundraisers will receive four tickets to the Neely SK8 Challenge Winner’s Night at a Bruins game, where they will sit in a private suite and meet and greet current Bruins President Cam Neely. The highest fundraiser will receive autographed Bruins items, four tickets to the Neely SK8 Challenge Winner’s Night at a Bruins game, a meet-and-greet with Bruins President Cam Neely, the opportunity to high-five the Bruins team as they take the ice and to ride on the Zamboni or be a bench assistant during warm-ups.
