GLIDING STARS AGREE IT’S “GREAT TO BE A KID”

The Gliding Stars of Findlay’s 18th annual ice show is scheduled for Sunday, March 17, 2019, beginning at
2:30 p.m. at the Cube, located at 3430 North Main Street in Findlay. Doors open at 1:30pm. The theme for
this year’s show is “It’s Great to be a Kid.”

Gliding Stars of Findlay is an adaptive ice-skating program for differently-abled youth and young adults who
practice their skating skills and rehearse throughout the year to present a show for the community. The
program uses adaptive equipment such as walkers and modified skates to help provide the Stars the chance to
skate. During the past 18 years, the program has provided opportunities for over 500 young people from
throughout the region to increase their self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as develop physical
strength, make new friends, and enjoy a sense of belonging. Fifty-four skaters from Hancock County and the
surrounding area are a part of this year’s show.

Over 75 volunteers, under the direction of skating coaches, assist the participants during the weekly
practices and show rehearsals. Volunteers include students from the University of Findlay and area middle
and high schools, area corporations and businesses, and family members and friends.

Tickets for the ice show can be purchased in advance from Integrity Salon 729 North Main Street. Ticket
prices for this family-friendly event are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children under 10. Tickets are
also available at the door the day of the show.

Ten themed baskets, each valued over $500, will be raffled off during the show. Tickets for the baskets are
four for $5.00 and can be purchased in advance from a Gliding Stars parent or board member, at Integrity
Salon, or the day of the show. Ticket holders do not need to be present at the show to win.
