F.U.B.A.R. Roller Jam!

Sunday, September 30, 12-6pm
Robson Square, 800 Robson Street, Vancouver

Friends United Beyond All Race is proud to present the second FUBAR Roller Jam! Robson Square’s skating rink will be magically transformed into a classic roller disco on September 30 from 12-6pm with family roller skating, old-school soul, funk and R&B music, and a fun, retro vibe. The event will also feature special performances, food vendors, face painting, prize draws, 50/50 draws, celebrity DJ’s, Table Tutor advanced DJ students and more. Advanced skaters will also be on site for individual help and instruction.

Admission by donation (min. $10). Proceeds go to Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon, whose mission it is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions giving them hope, strength and joy. Glow Sticks & Make-A-Wish Stars will also be available for purchase for a minimum donation of $20.

There will be an all-ages family & beginners skate from 12-2:30pm. This will be a slower-paced skate with lots of help to keep things safe. *Please note all kids under 10 MUST wear a helmet.*

The 3-6pm Adult Skate will be for skaters 10yrs and up, but it will be a faster-paced skate that will include adult advanced skaters, so it’s not recommended for brand new skaters. Beginner skaters should stick to the 12-2:00pm skate.

Adult skate rentals (sizes 1-13 only, sorry, no kids’ skates) will be available, provided by the Rolla Skate Truck and Shop Task. Safety gear is also available.

If you are unable to attend, you can still donate. Go to makeawishbc.ca/donate and select “In Honour Of” then type in the box “F.U.B.A.R. Roller Jam”. If you donate online you will receive an auto-generated tax receipt & thank you from Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon directly.
