Calling all hockey associations and skating clubs!!!
We have an easy and exciting fundraising opportunity for you!
Welcome to the new tradition in Minnesota Hockey. MN Hockey Magazine has created the Minnesota Skate-a-thon, which matches the energy of your hockey players with the technology of crowd funding. There is no selling, no ordering, no coupons … just interactive crowd funding and hard skating.
What is the Skate-a-thon?
Think of the Skate-a-thon as a 5k, 10K or marathon on ice for hockey players, hockey teams, and hockey associations. Associations and teams will raise funds to support their cause by team skating in a fun, interactive, engaging environment.
What do you skate for?
Associations and teams know their needs better than anyone else. The reason they skate in the Skate-a-thon is to raise funds for a variety of things. It’s their decision. From keeping registration affordable, to paying for ice time, tournament team travel, hockey gear for beginners, new uniforms, new warm up gear, to advanced training or any other cause the team and or association decides. This is only going to grow as hockey associations are looking for new ways to raise money.
- Decide what you want to skate for. It can be anything; equipment, travel expenses, ice time, etc. Then sign-up.
- We set up all web pages, funding pages, and print marketing like flyers and posters. We work with you to set up funds transfers and then email blast parents on how to collect pledges.
- Skate, reach your goal and cash in.
- Choose from over 106 possible skating dates over the winter to skate your Skate-a-thon outside at the Guidant John Rose Minnesota OVAL or several other locations.

The Guidant John Rose Oval will host thousands of skaters over 106 sessions that each team will schedule.
