Pigtails 4 Peace Fundraiser - Thank you!

The St. Peters Rec Plex recently lost a skater to bullying. Destiny Gleason was 14 years old, and had recently relocated with her family to Warrenton. A group of middle school girls tormented and bullied her to the point that she took her own life. It is an extremely tragic story, one that deserves our support and attention.

Destiny Gleason

St. Peters Figure Skating Association would like to thank everyone who participated in our "Pigtails 4 Peace" fundraiser. We were able to raise over $800 for Destiny's family. If you missed the opportunity to participate, you can still make a donation directly at https://www.gofundme.com/2m9rmd9w. Please mention "SPFSA-Pigtails 4 Peace" in the comments section.

Thank you again for standing up against bullying. Fly high Destiny!

If you or someone you know is being bullied, speak up, reach out and let's put a stop to bullying.
