Dear Gliding Stars Chapters Stars & Volunteers –
It is with disappointment that we must inform you that all Gliding Stars programs on ice are suspended at least until January 2021.
We have reviewed restrictions in place at the rinks in our program locations, as well as other factors concerning public activities in these locations. Due to the nature and challenges of the people we serve, who are at higher risk, and often immune compromised, and with the need for physical distancing and other recommended practices, the Gliding Stars Board of Directors feels that there is no practical way to safely provide our special on-ice programming under the current COVID-19 situation. Therefore, in the interest of safety for both our stars and volunteers, we have made this difficult decision.
The Board will continue to monitor this situation, and on December 10th, 2020 we will make a decision about moving forward.
We encourage you to consider local options for virtual fundraising and other engagement activities while Gliding Stars is unable to host an on-ice program. We will gladly work with you to help form ideas for continuing to engage virtually with your community of Stars and volunteers.
