2015 Pro Skater Profile – @BrittanyBowe

We are very excited to announce that Brittany Bowe will be returning to her roots on inlines and is joining forces with Bont Skates! Brittany has been making history in long track ice and is on a quest for an Olympic gold medal after having moved to Salt Lake City in 2010 and skated ice for the first time. She is the current World Record Holder in the 1000M, the current World Sprint Champion, as well as World Champion in the 1000M & 1500M, and a 2014 Olympic Team Member. She received the prestigious Eric Heiden athlete of the year award for 2014-2015, and was also inducted into the USARS Hall of Fame in 2015. Some of her inline accomplishments include 32 World Championship Medals, with 8 Senior World Titles; 3 Pan American Golds, and 11 Junior World Titles.

So far this year Brittany made a clean sweep on the track at the US Outdoor Nationals in June and ended up with 8 golds, 1 silver, and 3 new national records for track and road combined. She won the overall Pro NSC Ladies indoor racing debut, as well as gold in the 500M and 1000M at the European Cup in Worgl, Austria. We are honored to have her on Team Bont and are looking forward to building a lasting relationship with such a wonderful and talented skater.

Charitable Partnership with LSS

The NorthShore Inline Marathon is proud to announce that it has formed a partnership with Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota as part of our 20th anniversary celebration! In September 2015, LSS will celebrate its 150th anniversary in Minnesota, where it helps homeless youth, serves seniors with disabilities and provides adoption services.

Each night 120-150 young people have no place to call home in northeastern Minnesota. LSS is developing the Center for Changing Lives in Duluth which will create new transitional and permanent subsidized housing and bring together all of LSS’s at-risk youth programs. LSS will work with area churches, businesses and foundations to field teams for the inline marathon that will raise funds for the Center, as well as provide volunteers to help with the 2015 marathon. Clinics will be offered across the area for LSS participants who want to learn to skate.

Join LSS and the Inline Marathon in ending youth homelessness in our community. Stay tuned for more information and sign up to skate for LSS!
