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 took our event on the road, bringing our Skate for a Cause concept to our “Be the Change” community. The Skate for a Cause tour consisted of 10 demo stops across the US, where The Sheckler Foundation gave $10,000 grants 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 was really stoked to celebrate our 10th year with a Skate for a Cause tour."
