Skate for a Cause started in 2010 as a way for the Sheckler Foundation to raise resources and awareness to contribute to the many causes that directly benefit and enrich the lives of children and injured action sports athletes. The Sheckler Foundation’s mission is to “Be the Change” and this year’s Skate for a Cause is raising resources to empower people to do just that. Through its “Be the Change” program, the Sheckler Foundation will provide several organizations and individuals with financial grants and additional support with the money and resources raised at Skate For A Cause.
