Our missions and commitment to the United States Figure Skating Association continue with the creation and offering of programs and events for the development of the sport we love and are passionate about, ice skating. 

We believe our club's expectations have always been to grow our program(s) to it's maximum potential. And, in doing so, our club "gives back."  As our club director had previously addressed in meetings, "We are more than just a figure skating club, we bring a community..."   We believe we are one of the few clubs in the area that "gives back" and because of these efforts, our customers loved it and we were growing, despite the challenges in the economy we were dealing with. This was a very integral part of our future success, as it provided a pipeline to our figure skating program, whether competitive or recreational.

Our last Holiday Exhibition was just one example of how we involved and "gave back" to our community.  This was a benefit to breast cancer research and awareness. Our team received National singer and songwriter, Krysta Young's (hometown, Grand Blanc) blessing to utilize her song in the opening number.  It was an ideal choice of music for our charitable event.  Young writes, records and performs pop songs of her own as well as for others.  Some of her songs have even been featured on MTV!  The song, "Pink Christmas," was created with the inspiration of her mother, who was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple years ago.  Young stated, "I am happy to say my Mom is now cancer free and I am so excited to be part of this ice show and for such a worthy cause."

During this exhibition, the community was welcome to take part in our "Glow of Hope" ceremony in honor of a loved one touched by cancer.  For a $1 donation, donators received a pink ribbon ornament and the name of their loved one was announced during this heartwarming ceremony.  This effort warmed the hearts of top USFSA officials and in turn, brought national attention to our club in the February issue of SKATING Magazine

Locally, we had the support of the American Cancer Society's Associate Director who passionately promoted our event on their Facebook page for the 'Making Strides Flint' event.  With the efforts of everyone involved, especially our skaters, our holiday ice exhibition was a success.  We were able to raise $1,040!  Proceeds benefited the American Cancer Society - Making Strides Against Breast Cancer as well as "We Skate for You" scarves that were made for local breast cancer patients currently receiving chemo.  Ice Mountain Figure Skating Club members presented the "We Skate for You" scarves to cancer center patients within the Genesee County area in March.  The reward...a message from one of the cancer patients.  "Just want 2 thank u all 4 making the scarfs for the cancer patients at Genesys/Hurley Center in Flint.  I have one, it's really NICE!!!  Thank you all!!!"

Again, this is just one example of how our club was (and continues) to be about community.  The IMFSC has also supported the Toys for Tots program for over 7 years.

But most importantly...

we had partnered with both the Grand Blanc Parks and Recreation and Davison Community Enrichment & Recreation to bring after-school LTS programs to the community, which was a first for our tri-county area.  It is with these efforts and desire to introduce skating, in various forms, to our community (involving our community) which make us unique.  And it would be an answer to our prayers to bring this unique venue back to the Burton community with the reopening of our rink.

In the meantime, we will continue to
Live. Love. Skate.
