Tribute to Life is a movement started by Dr. Petra Mursch following the passing of dear friend and fellow skater, Mr. David Drake. Tribute to Life raises money for the Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center at Hartford Hospital by putting on an ice show every August at the Newington Arena. Featuring olympic level athletes as well as local talent, to-date over $35,000 has been raised. Help us continue the mission!
