Olympic star Hamilton & Hughes at Skate For Hope in BG

Posted: Updated:
It was a star-studded evening at the Skate For Hope ice show at the Bowling Green State University Ice Arena on Saturday.

The event raises money for breast cancer research, education and support services. Hometown hero Hamilton is a cancer survivor himself. He said he couldn't miss the event. "I call it the trifecta: it's cancer, it's skating, and it's Bowling Green. I can't miss it, I've got to go."

Local skaters raised money in order to become a cast member in the all-star show. To date, the charity has raised over $500,000 for cancer research.
