Come out to the third annual Skate for a Cause this Saturday, May 5th 2012, at the newly renovated Etnies Skate Park, Lake Forest, CA. 10am-5pm. Tickets and proceeds benefit skate clinics for autistic children and their families.
Ryan Sheckler and the Sheckler Foundation will again host the festivities, a family friendly event that combines a world class skate jam and carnival. Nixon athletes scheduled to appear include Ryan Sheckler, Jason Ellis, Ryan Decenzo, Torey Pudwill, and many more.
All of the day’s events give skateboarders, sponsors and the community a chance to have fun while giving back to raise funds for A.skate. The A.skate Foundation is a non-profit that allows kids with autism to be a part of the social world through skateboarding. They hold clinics for kids with autism at no cost to the families, give grants to kids with autism for skateboard gear, as well as promote awareness and education.
The high octane skate jam promises to deliver a rewarding experience for all participants. Plus, the Cinco De Mayo carnival will offer traditional games, modified to utilize skate equipment and themes like Bearing Toss, Bull Pong, Dunk Tank, Ring Toss onto Indy Trucks, and Pin the Tail on the Donkey.
Moreover, if you want to get inside the skate park and brush shoulders with the best skateboarders in the world, for a donation of $50, you’ll get out of the bleachers and into the action.
