Ice Rink Returns with Character Counts! Fundraiser

Skating at Reston Town Center/Credit: Vballslife via FlickrReston’s outdoor ice rink has returned to Market Street.

Reston Town Center’s pavilion made the transition from summertime concert location to winter skating rink over the weekend and is now open for business.

The rink will hold its annual fundraiser for Character Counts! Reston Coalition on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

During open skating hours from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Character Counts will receive 50 percent of ice skating admission fees to support their work with Ethics Day at South Lakes High School in November. Also benefitting from the proceeds will be the Reston Kids Triathlon, the Cornerstones’ Best of Reston event, and other charitable initiatives to support character-building for students in the community.

Character Counts! is a national, nonprofit, nonpartisan, character education initiative designed to help youngsters and adults develop and practice the basics of good character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

Character Counts! supports programs in Reston in conjunction with Reston Association, Reston Community Center, Cornerstones, Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce, Reston CitizensAssociation, YMCA of Reston, and the office of Fairfax County Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins.
