Club Live and Friday Night Live leaders and members recently gathered at the South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena on Make-a- Difference Day for a skate-a-thon. Members of the clubs had a great time skating around the arena to raise money for Ordinary People meeting Extraordinary Needs.

The clubs were helping raise money to help purchase ice sleds so people with physical disabilities could enjoy skating at the ice arena.

During the skate-a-thon nearly 40 youths and adults skated for four hours. After all collection were completed, more than $2,100 was raised. Each sled costs $400 so the clubs raised enough for five sleds.

Billie Bridges, representing OPEN, said that they would like to purchase about 20 sleds.
