It is a chilly one out there, but the ODR is OPEN!

Posted in Community News

THE ODR IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! Due to the warmer temperatures, the decision to close the ODR was made to ensure that the quality of the ice surface is maintained. Our intention is to open as soon as we can.

A special thank you to our Volunteers for spending two plus hours outside to make the Race happen on a very cold day! As usual, our volunteers go above and beyond to make our community GREAT! We had a number of kids volunteer with their parent for the event – mom/daughter, father/son. It was great to see the kids step up for the event with their parents. We had a total of 7 kids volunteer for over 2.5 hours – great community spirit!!

A special recognition also to the following businesses that helped with their time and/or door prizes:
Crystal Creek Homes – for the Lemonade station and the Race Passports. Note they currently have a $10,000 referral program for residents of Discovery Ridge only.
Javino – for the race station, door prizes and discount on food.
Heart & Mind Yoga – for hosting the Yogi station and door prizes.
Griffith Store – for hosting the Slush station and discount on slushes.
Healing Matters Psychological Services – for the Brain Teaser station and for taking pictures.

We hope everyone enjoyed being active and had fun engaging with your neighbours and local businesses.

See you next year!
