“I am very excited for this collaboration with Sandlot Times and the Sheckler Foundation,” stated Oscar Loreto Jr. Oscar Loreto Jr. was one of our round 3 “Be the Change” finalists in 2014 when we had to 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 this right hand. After countless doctor visits as a child, he learned and adapted to his prosthesis 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 lead him to where he is now, giving back by helping to create opportunities for children with physical disabilities to get involved in skateboarding

10th Annual - 10 Cities - $10,000 Grants

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."
