Skate the Same Distance as Canada’s Olympians

By Brian Schultz

The Forks is hosting the first annual KidSport Skate-a-Thon today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Kids will have the opportunity to take after Canada’s Olympic speed skaters Cindy Klassen and Clara Hughes by skating the same distance they did to previously win multiple Olympic medals.

Registration is free to all ages and abilities, and pledges for KidSport are welcome.
