Dare 2010: Sports anchor Mark Roe Dares to figure skate (VIDEO)

November 4, 2010

Mark Roe, Sports Anchor on /A\ News in Barrie, Ontario, is not much of a skater. With that fact firmly in mind, Mark will attempt figure skating — on TV, for all the world to watch — as his Dare for the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s A Dare to Remember campaign.

With the help of Mariposa School of Skating instructor and Olympic skater Tugba Karademir, Mark will learn how to do a 3 turn into a 2-foot upright spin and perform it on the air on World AIDS Day (December 1, 2010).

Mark has set a personal fundraising goal of $5000. The money raised will go directly to support the inspiring transformation in sub-Saharan Africa, where community-based organizations are working to turn the tide of AIDS. Click here to visit Mark’s fundraising page and make a donation!
