Skate for Scoliosis was created to raise awareness for Scoliosis research. Severe Scoliosis can cause a wide variety of health issues and problems, presently there is no cure. 

This fundraiser was created to remember my mother - Elaine G. Prata - a fighter of scoliosis. Elaine had a passion for ice skating as a child, and was even visited by the Ice-capades back in the late 1960's. Elaines passion for skating was one of the many hobbies that kept her focused on fighting her Scoliosis. Full body casts, fused discs in her spine, numerous surgeries as a child, and even a curvature greater than 90 degrees never slowed her down, though she was taken down a few times, she was never out of the fight. Elaine lost her battle with this incurable disease this past November, and her Son, David, created this fundraiser on behalf of the Prata family to honor her memory.
