Meet Yvonne -- our Barrier Buster of the month.
Yvonne, at 88, is a picture of Vitality. She has been a member of the Vitality community since 2009 and serves on our Barrier Busters team. Yvonne began skating professionally with the Ice Capades in 1945 and has taught hundreds of children and adults the skills and joy of ice skating. She retired from teaching after suffering a stroke last August but is back on the ice and continues to participate in competitions throughout the Rocky Mountain Front Range Region. She skated the Figures and Artistic events in an Ice Skating Institute sanctioned competition at the Family Sports Center in Centennial, Colorado just this past December.
Yvonne is a vital member of our Vitality Skating Group that gets together and "wanders around the ice for a while" on various public sessions at the Apex Ice Arena in Arvada, Colorado. "I invite everyone with a yen to skate to become a member of Vitality In Action and join us. Anyone can skate," says Yvonne.
