Ryan Sheckler started the Sheckler Foundation in 2008 as an avenue to give back to the community, and help injured action sports athletes get back on their feet. What started as a tiny nonprofit operated and run by Ryan and his mom, the Sheckler Foundation has grown into a full-on nationally recognized fundraising machine. With help from its Skateboard Committee members Christian Hosoi, Felipe Gustavo, Greg Lutzka, Fabrizio Santos, and Manny Santiago, the Sheckler Foundation has helped raise money and awareness for everything from hospital bills for injured skate filmer, Ricki Bedenbaugh, to the construction of a skatepark for a native American tribe. "Be The Change!"
