DENVER (CBS4)– Skaters from the cast of Disney On Ice got on the ice Wednesday morning at the Skyline Skating Rink, ahead of their opening show with a group young skaters. With support from the Downtown Denver Partnership, children from HopeKids got an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to skate with the stars behind the masks.

“I get to do cool tricks that I don’t get to do every day. It’s a ton of fun!” said Carter Hampton with HopeKids.

HopeKids is an organization that offers supports and events for families who have a child with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses.

“This is such a neat way for skaters to get out and give back to the community and get to know people. I have made some really fun, new friends here today. It’s just a great thing that we love to do,” said Disney On Ice skater Jennifer Payne.
