Launch of the Hayden Synchronized Skating Annual Fund

Dear Friends and Families of Hayden Synchronized Skating:

We would like to thank you for your past support. We are so proud of our Skaters!

As 2012 ends, we are launching the Hayden Synchro Skating Annual Fund. This means you have the opportunity to make a generous (tax deductable) donation to support our future competitive success. The Annual Fund enables three initiatives that are vital:

  • Expanding our off-ice training to improve our skaters’ long term fitness
  • Utilizing specialty coaches to enhance specific skating skills
  • Replenishing the Lynn Benson Scholarship Fund to continue annual Awards.
As Director of Skating Saga Krantz explained, “We need to take the long view. We are committed to developing and training the strongest and most talented synchro skaters in the world. This starts early. Strong fitness and dance training in our skaters’ early synchro years translates to the highest competitive results when our skaters are in their late teens and twenties.”
Our target is to raise $21,000 by December 31, 2012. We need your help! Any amount is appreciated. As of now, we have $3,000, thanks to ads in our 2012-2013 Program Books.

If all Hayden Synchro families and alumni donate $100, we will reach our Annual Fund goal.

All gifts of $100 and more will be recognized in future Hayden Synchronized Skating Program Books and on our Hayden Synchronized Skating website. Gifts of $250 and $500 and above will have special recognition.

Go to and click “Donate” to give or click here for a donation form.

Hayden Synchronized Skating Teams, Inc is a registered 501-C3 Charity and gifts are tax deductable to the extent allowed by law (consult your tax advisor for your individual situation.). Corporate matching funds are also encouraged

Your support is KEY to our success!

Please give generously and support Hayden Synchronized Skating’s success.
