Sheckler Foundation’s ‘Skate for a Cause’ 2014

Be The ChangeThe Sheckler Foundation, its sponsors and pro skateboarders will come together for the 5th annual Skate for a Cause, presented by etnies this Saturday, May 3rd. Held at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest, the Cinco De Mayo weekend event will help raise funds for the Sheckler Foundation’s “Be the Change” initiative to help injured action sports athletes and children in need.
Some of the skaters invited include: Chris Cole, Cairo Foster, Christian Hosoi, Fabrizio Santos, Felipe Gustavo, Greg Lutzka, Leticia Bufoni, Louie Lopez, Julian Davidson, Manny Santiago, Nick Garcia, Nyjah Huston, Paul Rodriguez, Torey Pudwill and many more. These pro skateboarders have been invited to skate the park alongside Ryan Sheckler and compete in contests for cash prizes.

A limited number of VIP tickets are available for a $50 donation on the foundation’s site at ShecklerFoundation.org. VIP tickets allow access inside the skatepark; offering up front access to hang out with pro skateboarders and watch them compete against each other. Skateboarding can definitely generate goodwill for those less fortunate.

S’klallam Tribe Skatepark Opens with Sheckler Foundation’s ‘Be The Change’ Initiative

YouTube Preview ImageLast Saturday the S’Klallam Tribe in Washington State, joined by pro skateboarders Ryan Sheckler and David Reyes, unveiled their new skatepark with a ceremony and tribal feast for hundreds of Native Americans. This is the first skatepark on the reservation, and it was made possible by the Sheckler Foundation’s first-ever “Be the Change” project. The youth of the S’Klallam Tribe submitted their cause for a new skatepark and received the most votes for their plans to build a much-needed skatepark and basketball court in their community.

Pro Skateboarder and Founder of the Sheckler Foundation, Ryan Sheckler says, “I am so blessed and stoked to skate alongside these kids and to be here for the grand opening of the skatepark. It’s unreal and rewarding to see how the community came together to ‘Be the Change’ and create a skatepark for the kids of the tribe.”
