    Skate for Hope - Columbus OH- June 15, 2013

    Here is a link to a wonderful show which has raised $430,000 for breast cancer research over the last 10 years.

    http://www.skateforhope.org/site/Pag...gename=general

    I have to tell you this is an absolutely awesome show. Headliners this year are Max Aaron, Ashley Wagner, Rachael Flatt, Jeremy Abbott, Gilles& Poirier, Alexe Gilles, Emily Hughes, Emily Samuelson, Adam Rippon, and Christina Gao.

    What helps to make this really special (besides the awesome headliners) are all the skaters of various ages and skill levels that raise money in order to participate in this show. It is just very touching watching the elite skaters help the little ones.

    This will be the third year I've attended and I HIGHLY recommend it! Lots of parking available in nearby lots/garages and lots of restaurants in downtown Columbus.

    It's nice to see Rachael is still skating, at some level!
    Is Emily Samuelson skating as a single ice dancer (like Shae Lynn does), or does she have a partner?

    Lots of interesting stuff.


    I hope someone will go to this event and tell us how the skaters do.

    I think Emily is skating as a single ice dancer. She did appear with Todd Gilles one time, but they had already ended their partnership.

    Excerpt from one of @EmilySamuelson's tweets today regarding Skate for Hope:

    It may be one of the last times I perform! =(

    BTW, Samuelson also tweeted not too long ago about her UMich graduation festivities , where she sat with fellow graduate Lynn Kriengkrairut.

    Thanks for the info on the tweets. It is sad to think that Emily can't find a partner. I really look forward to seeing her at Skate for Hope.

    The Skate for Hope gang has been tweeting some great photos.

    Examples (apparently from a fun visit to the firehouse this morning):
