Annual Events

PRO Kids family skates

We invite you to put on your skates and helmet and join us on the ice at the Fort William Gardens for not one but two family skates. Both skates have awesome games and prizes, face painting and special guests. Look for our Shaw Family skate this holiday season and our Mac's Family Skate next spring!

Conquer the Tower

The fundraiser that makes the biggest splash! Each fall we invite local community leaders and business owners to take the plunge off the diving towers at the Canada Games Complex. The more money raised the higher they have to jump.


Thank you to our 2017 sponsors
