Default More Skate of the Union

You've probably already decided whether you are going to show or not, but a new press release on Skate of the Union weekend:

Nationís Capital Showcases Olympic Spirit, US Olympians at 2012 Skate of the Union Weekend

Proceeds benefit Special Olympics and DC Inner City Excellence (DC-ICE) youth skating programs.

2012, Washington, DC: Hundreds of inline and roller skating recreational and expert skaters will be rolling into the Nationís Capital in June to participate in the USAís premier all-skating event, the 2012 Skate of the Union (SOTU). From June 21 to June 24, skate enthusiasts of all ages and abilities will take part in skateboarding, roller skating, inline events around the National Mall, RFK Stadium, Anacostia Park Skating Pavilion, Temple Hills Skate Palace and the Fairfax Police Departmentís Driver Training Track in Chantilly, Virginia.

SOTUís feature event will take place on Saturday, June 23 on the historic RFK Stadium campus as part of the worldwide Olympic Day celebration. With members of the US Olympic Speedskating Team presiding, pro and elite-caliber skaters from across the U.S. vie for cash prizes in the National Inline Grand Prix, a thrilling criterium-style race. Recreational and fitness skaters test their stamina in 5k and 10k races and a 1-lap (2.5k) Kids Fun Roll, while skateboarders will test their skills and have fun in a novel 100m Skateboard Sprint.

The morning concludes with an Olympic Day Ceremony (Noon), followed by the final leg of the US Olympians' Walk to London campaign (12:15), which began at the LA Coliseum on April 7th. Walk to London has seen Olympic alumni from across the U.S. hosting 5k events in their communities to help build momentum for the 2012 US Olympic Team at the Summer Olympic Games in London this July. Joined by the US Olympic Committee, speedskating and figure skating Olympians will conclude the Walk to London by launching the Skate to Sochi (site of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games), leading a free 1-lap roll of the RFK grand-prix course, open to all skaters of any age, kind, or ability.

Complete details and a full agenda of the SOTU activities from Thursday June 21stís ďGo Skateboarding DayĒ kick-off through Sunday June 24thís SOTU Race events to include a full marathon, half marathon, 10k & 5k for inline and rollerskaters can be found at www.skateoftheunion.org.


For details about the 2012 Skate of the Union:


Facebook (Skate of the Union) | Twitter (@SkateoftheUnion).


DC-ICE was established in 2006 by a former Olympic Speedskater, Nathaniel Mills, and families involved in the Kids On Ice Learn to Speedskate program at Fort Dupont Ice Arena in Washington, DC's Ward 7. Inspired by the success of pioneering two-time Olympic Gold-medalist Shani Davis, one of Millsí former pupils, Inner City Excellence programs now serve hundreds of children each year, many living east of DCís Anacostia River, through the popular I.C.E. Camp and out-of-school I.C.E. Academy, which inspires children to become Olympians in Life. More info can be found at www.InnerCityExcellence.org
