Help me, help STOKED!
Give the gift of hope and accomplishment by helping me raise funds to support the Stoked Mission. On March 25, 2012 I'll be participating in the STOKED Trishredathon(Snowboarding+Surfing+Skateboard - athon)
For many of us, Snowboarding, Surfing or Skateboarding are just hobbies to be enjoyed - for others they are a luxury seldom experienced. Help give disadvantage youths the sense of accomplishment that can only come from "linking a turn", "catching a wave" or "shredding a board".
"Stoked’s mission is to promote personal development, academic achievement, and healthy living to under-served youth through action sports culture."
"The students that benefit from Stoked mentoring realize amazing success. The schools Stoked works with typically have a 50% graduation rate and have both gang and drop-out issues. Stoked retains 92% of their youth from year to year, and 100% of Stoked students have graduated from high school. Operating since 2005, Stoked has successfully worked with over 2,100 kids!"
Donate a little or a lot, anything you can give will be appreciated.
STOKED MENTORING wrote -
On March 25, 2012 Stoked is hosting an epic action sports triathlon; a day of surfing, skating and snowboarding, all for a rad cause.
We wanted to create a fundraiser that felt organic to Stoked and to our supporters in Los Angeles and this just felt right.
In case you don't know already, Stoked works with disadvantaged kids in NYC and LA. We take them on surf/snow/skate trips and pair them with great mentors (aka people like you) so that they can build confidence and get amped on succeeding in life.
Here's what the day will look like.
1. Snowboarding or Skiing
2. Surfing in Santa Monica
3. Skateboarding in Venice
Location details TBA.
There will also be a raffle with loads of sick goodies, prizes and an after-party. Fun times ahead.
Good luck fundraising and happy shredding!
