DECEMBER 2, 2022 (San Clemente, CA) - Today, Sandlot Times and the Sheckler Foundation released an Oscar Loreto Jr. guest model skateboard to benefit the foundation’s Adaptive Skate Programming in 2023. As a Sheckler Foundation SkateBOARD member and leader in the Adaptive Skate community, Oscar and the team are committing 50% of the proceeds to impact children with physical disabilities to get involved in skateboarding.
Oscar Loreto Jr. was one of the Sheckler Foundation round three "Be the Change" finalists in 2014 when we had the privilege of first meeting him. Oscar was born in Hollywood, CA in July of 1986 with a congenital birth defect that caused him to be missing his left foot, his left hand and four fingers of his right hand. After countless doctor visits as a child, he learned and adapted to his prothesis quickly. He learned to write with both his hands and lived a close to normal childhood.
Soon after middle school, Oscar opened "Pandoras Box" of skateboarding which eventually led him to where he is now, giving back by helping to create opportunities for children with physical disabilities to get involved in skateboarding.
“Oscar is the man and has always supported me and the Sheckler Foundation,” stated Ryan Sheckler. “It is an honor to be able to give him a signature guest board. He deserves it!”
“I am in awe and it truly is a dream come true to have this guest board that not only will normalize disability, but also be a conduit to further the great work the Sheckler Foundation does with their Adaptive Skate Programming. I’m so grateful to Ryan, Gretchen, Angelique, Michael and everyone at Sandlot Times and the Sheckler Foundation for believing in me and the Adaptive Skate Community.” - Oscar Loreto Jr.

SKATE FOR A CAUSE TOUR: This is who we are, it’s what we’re all about, join the movement to "Be the Change"! See you on our Skate for a Cause Tour!
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Skate for a Cause, we are taking our event on the road, bringing our Skate for a Cause concept to our “Be the Change” community. The Skate for a Cause tour will consist of 10 demo stops across the US, where The Sheckler Foundation will grant $10,000 to 10 great causes that directly benefit and enrich the lives of children and injured action sports athletes, inspiring them to “Be the Change”!
"Our amazing skate family across the country has been asking us for years to take Skate for a Cause on the road to reach more people. It's been a blessing to have this event in California the past 9 years, but I'm really stoked to celebrate our 10th year with a Skate for a Cause tour."
- RYAN SHECKLER
