Skate for a Cause 2013

By Shannon Stern

           

               With the warm sunshine shining brightly, the Sheckler Foundation’s Skate for a Cause 2013, held on May 4th, was off to a great start! Amazing skateboarders took to the etnies Skatepark in Lake Forest, California to partake in a variety of activities for charity.

 

              "Today was one of our best ones,” stated professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler. “We raised ninety grand. People were skating amazing, the weather was good, and tons of fans came out. It was a great day!”

 

              This sentiment was shared with fellow professional skateboarders Greg Lutzka and Austen Seaholm. Seaholm was super excited to attend the event, allowing him time to hang out with his friends and have a great skate session. Lutzka loved to skate the event as well.

 

              The money raised from today’s event was above and beyond what was expected. The funds raised will help to build a skatepark on the Port Gamble S’klallam Reservation as a part of the “Be the Change” project.

 

              After this event, many of the skateboarders in attendance are headed out to Barcelona to compete in Street League at X Games. Lutzka, a part of this year’s Street League Select Series, is excited to be going to Barcelona. He also loves the new contest format. Torey Pudwill, a Street League Pro who got third in Foz, is also stoked on going to Barcelona. He is going early to street skate.

 

             Not only do they have competitions to look forward to, Sheckler and Pudwill are working hard on the Plan B video. Both are working hard at completing their parts and expect amazing results once their parts and the video are complete. Look for the video to be released later this summer.
