Team Excel Skaters Participate in HopeWalks
On Sunday, September 28th, skaters participated in the fifth annual HopeWalks event at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in loving memory of Jane Gruber, fondly known as “Grubie.”
Grubie was a founding member of Team Excel. She managed all of the off-ice training activities, attended all off-ice practice sessions for all teams, and traveled to competitions and events. She was also the Director of Rehab Services at Newton Wellesley Hospital, and actively treated skaters from clubs all over Massachusetts. Grubie is greatly missed, but her memory lives on in the skating community. We are all inspired to be Strong Like Grubie!
Proceeds raised from the HopeWalks event benefit cancer patients by supporting the Integrative Support Services offered at the Vernon Cancer Center where Grubie was treated.
