This inaugural event features a Multi-tiered Endurance Event, a street festival, and an Icemen Hockey game. Participants select the total number of steps on their course. Team Puck led by Donna Deegan run a quick, fun course along the concourse level of Veterans Memorial Arena that begins with a limited series of stairs and the finishing leg passing through the arena bowl before exiting the building to finish in the middle of our street party. The Sticks, led by Tim Deegan run a similar course, however, this group kicks it up a notch by including a 4 level “turning” staircase—TWICE. The Sticks adventure also has them passing through the arena bowl but before exiting they must run a pathway of narrow stairways.


For the younger enthusiasts, families, and those who enjoy a “challenge race” there is the Goalie lap. The Goalie lap includes a short staircase and concourse lap. Complete all three events in the Hat Trick Challenge.


Following the award presentation at 4:00 pm the street block in front of the arena will be the sight of an exciting winter street festival with vendors, food trucks, interactive gaming trucks, music, and more. Capping the day is the last home game of the calendar year for the Jacksonville Icemen, against their in-state rivals the Orlando Solar Bears. Don’t miss the opportunity to join us at the very beginning of a new DONNA tradition—The DONNA Puck & Stick A Stair Challenge. How many steps can you conquer?
