Press Release from
the Sheckler Foundation

San Clemente, CA – The skateboard community united today and exceeded expectations by raising $100,000 at the Sheckler Foundation’s 4th Annual SKATE FOR A CAUSE event, presented by etnies, in Lake Forest! Every skateboarder that won gave their winnings back to the Sheckler Foundation too.

The money raised will go to building a skatepark on the Port Gamble S’klallam Reservation as a part of the “Be the Change” project.

Skateboard legends Sergie Ventura, Jay Adams, Aaron Astorga and Dave Hackett were among the many that competed in the skatepark’s Shark bowl but it was Christian Hosoi that took home the GoPro Legends Bowl title this year.

The Sheckler Foundation would like to extend a big thanks to all of the skateboarders, sponsors and event goers who came out to support the cause and “Be the Change” by raising funds to build the skatepark on the Port Gamble S’klallam Reservation.
