Columbus Ice Hockey Club Mission:

To allow youth from diverse communities and extenuating circumstances in Central Ohio the opportunity to develop core values through hockey and use it as a vehicle to open doors and excel in all aspects of their lives. 

Skate it Forward 2019

As a leader in the hockey community, we are excited to send your club details on Skate It Forward, an upcoming event that celebrates ice sports while raising money to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. 


We are so lucky to have the world’s largest Ronald McDonald House right here in Columbus. However, with the continued expansion at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, the demand for the services at The House is significantly rising. We know NHL players are known for their efforts off the ice in the community and we would like to engage our local hockey community to support this incredible mission. 

Over the past few years, the Skate It Forward event has primarily featured figure skating. Our goal this year is to increase participation and showcase hockey. Alongside OhioHealth, the Columbus Blue Jackets are supporting this year's event.. The Blue Jackets players and wives have an extensive partnership at our local Ronald McDonald House. They have renovated rooms, donated tickets and are often there serving meals. Blue Jackets Alumni players will appear and both Greg Murray and Mike Todd, in-arena host will emcee. Together, our goal is to raise $70,000 to help families.

The hockey segment will feature four ice skills sessions with Lee Harris beginning on May 4th which lead up to the showcase on Saturday, June 22 at the OhioHealth Ice Haus. The registration fee is $150 (Thanks to The Tortorella family, we will have the opportunity to provide scholarships to a few CIHC players who meet the criteria) and then participates are asked to raise $350 for the house via Everyday hero, for details please click here.

Thank you for helping us spread the word locally to our loyal hockey community!

Yours in Hockey,
