“We are thrilled to be able to bring together this incredible group of skaters, to perform in front of so many friends and to honor the memory of my great friend Francesca “Frenchie” Persico, who lived life so fully and fought pediatric cancer so bravely. We chose North Star Reach as the beneficiary of FrenchieSkate because their goal is to bring joy to these special children and allow them to let go of their diagnosis and just be kids at camp” – Georgia Glastris, event founder, reigning Greek National Champion and a junior at the University of Michigan.
