U.S. Figure Skating Presents

Get Up® San Jose

We all fall. It’s how we Get Up® that matters.

Getting up is something you do in the rink and out in the world. Every time you go to practice. Every time you fight for something you believe in. Every time you stumble and find your balance you are reminded that life is slippery.

But you Get Up®.

In October of 2016, U.S. Figure Skating launched the Get Up Campaign to be an inspiring reminder to skaters and non-skaters that the sport of figure skating is one the requires perseverance, grit and a #WeGetUp attitude.
In celebration of the 2018 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose, we will recognize the incredible individuals and companies in the Bay Area community by telling their stories.

We encourage San Jose, and the entire Bay Area community, to share their Get Up® moments, whether connected to the sport of figure skating or not, with us by emailing their stories, pictures and videos to [email protected]. Several stories will be featured on WeGetUp.com, in publications and recognized in-venue during the U.S. Championships. Stories may also be submitted on behalf of friends and family.

We will also be recognizing organizations in San Jose and the Bay Area that embody the Get Up® spirit. Select organizations will be recognized at the U.S. Championships and on WeGetUp.com as an Organization We Admire.

We hope San Jose and Bay Area community members will join the movement and become Get Up® ambassadors. Please take the lead and share our message with family and friends!

Get Up® San Jose!
