| November 4, 2019 | 0 Comments

San Diegans are invited to skate their way through the holiday season at the Rady Children’s Ice Rink at Liberty Station, which begins Thursday, November 14 and runs through Sunday, January 5, 2020.  The ice rink will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary and Liberty Station welcome the community to celebrate the holiday season with outdoor ice skating. Net proceeds benefit the Thriving After Cancer program in the Rady Children’s Hospital’s Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.

“Thriving After Cancer is a fantastic program focusing on providing children who have completed their cancer treatments and their families the tools and education they need to advocate for physical, emotional, nutritional, and practical needs,” said Laura Stearn, president of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary. “Everyone who joins at the Ice Rink is helping to support such a vital resource for hundreds of San Diego families.”

“Rady Children’s Ice Rink has become such a staple in Liberty Station’s holiday traditions and we look forward to its opening every year,” said Laurie Albrecht, executive director of the Liberty Station Community Association. “The rink’s return kicks off the holiday season by bringing the community together for some holiday cheer while also helping San Diego families dealing with childhood cancer.”

Special happenings at the ice rink include Gulls Night, Liberty Station’s Tree Lighting, and other holiday festivities taking place throughout Liberty Station’s Salute the Season. A full calendar of Salute the Season happenings can be found athttps://libertystation.com/events/salute-the-season.

Located in the Central Promenade, Rady Children’s Ice Rink at Liberty Station is sponsored by the Liberty Station Community Association, the ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station, NBC 7 San Diego, and SENTRE Inc. Tickets can be purchased on-site and are good for reentry throughout the day, and all tickets include skate rental and helmets. For more information, visit radyfoundation.org/icerink.
