THE STORY:

Dear all,

This year again, I have decided to run the awesome NYC Marathon. It is such an awesome, challenging race, but it is also one of the largest fundraising events for many many great causes. This year, the bar has been set high, with the aim to raise one million dollars a mile.

This year again, I have chosen to support Stoked Mentoring and run for Team Stoked.

Why Stoked? Because Perseverance, Determination, Resiliency, Motivation, Will, Passion, Respect, Trust ... are just a few of the qualities and valuable life skills that can be learned through and from action sports such as surfing, snowboarding or skateboading. And this is where Stoked Mentoring comes in, provinding the foundations and organization to bring big smiles on the faces of young kids while teaching them some of those life-changing skills.

Stoked Mentoring reaches kids in underprivileged communities and empowers them to achieve a more successful future by providing programs based on action sports culture that results in personal development, academic achievement, positive relationships, and a healthy lifestyle. Kids involved in the Stoked Mentoring program have achieved 100% graduation rate!

I know that these values have tremendously helped me through my life, and I would not be where I am today without the lessons learnt through pain and perseverance while I was "just playing" out in the surf or in the streets on a board with 4 wheels when I was a kid.

Thank you all for your support and the difference you are making. You are AWESOME.

See you at the finish line.

Abdellah
