Coyotes executive Lyndsey Fry to skate 96 miles for new Leighton Accardo Scholarship Fund

A casual skate to avoid the pandemic blues one day turned into something bigger for Lyndsey Fry, and now her daily rollerblading is leading up to a special day.

Fry, the Arizona Coyotes’ director of External Engagement & Female Hockey and president of the Arizona Kachinas Hockey Association, wondered what it would be like to skate to every ice rink in the Valley. So she mapped out distances and routes between the rinks in the area.

Fry’s idea spawned an event called “Skatin’ For Leighton,” in which she will rollerblade roughly 96 miles around the Valley to raise funds for the newly created Leighton Accardo Scholarship Fund, which will provide financial assistance to girls interested in playing hockey in Arizona.
