Cheri, Elise, Rick and Brad

The Rigby and Bradley Families

A thriving aspect of the Skating Club of Boston’s legacy is lifelong friendships and is exemplified by these 2 couples. Rick and Brad have been friends since they were both teenagers training with the legendary coach Bob Black. These two couples have shared all of life’s successes and challenges. As teens, Rick, Brad and Cheri’s social life revolved around the Skating Club. Through college (Rick at Tufts and Brad at Harvard), they shared their college campus experiences. They were part of each other’s weddings. They have shared the beauty and challenges of raising children. They have shared the trials and tribulations of starting new businesses (using what they learned in Skating as their compass). They continue to share the challenge of new transitions in life.
