One of the region’s showcase events, the Celebration On Ice is the culmination of a year of hard work and practice for SABAH’s special needs athletes of all ages challenged by physical, cognitive, and/or emotional disability.

SABAH organizes, choreographs and costumes the annual event, which features the accomplishments of SABAH’s special needs athletes. The skills learned in skating lessons translate into real-world success that our athletes carry beyond the rink and into everyday life.
