The youngsters from the Sooke Skating Club took over the ice rink at SEAPARC last Thursday evening to help raise money for KidSport by taking pledges and skating laps. Over the last 10 years, the Canadian non-profit organization has given about $75,000 in grants to children in Sooke so they can take part in organized sport that includes skating. The club raised $3,284, with $820 going to KidSport. The rest will fund program costs like ice time and coaching, said coach Bethan Greydanus.
